Most recently I have been emersing cloth and garments in wax. 'Freezing' them in time and hanging them in space. Have been feeling somewhat like a kitten chasing shinning things in terms of what I am making.
Been looking at Baroque paintings and sculptures.
See the influence?
Caravaggio "St. Matthew and the Angel"
Bernini "Ectasy of St. Teresa"
Here is a slip....rust printed and dipped in wax.
My first attempt in dying felt.
An awesome experience!
Dyed them in Ball canning jars.
Looked like little color jars of guts.
Some rusty things I recieved today from a new friend.
Today was like Christmas!
