slash and burn

06 Jul

Well, no *actual* burning yet…but who knows?

crack start

possible crack

I like the lace but am not sure yet where it will go, as i have other “cracks” planned as well. Perhaps it will leak out somewhere else.

    Great to see the process – thoughts, testing, moving along…just a glimpse into the creation of a great piece of Arlee’s art in fiber, for sure

    I’m now thinking about how to constrol burning on natural fibre fabric. Some sort of moat? Wet a circle and burn the centre? It’s too early in the morning for this kind of thing Arlee . . . the middle of the night is the time for such musing.

    Love the idea of a crack !

    “Ring the bells that still can ring,
    Forget your perfect offering,
    There’s a crack in everything,
    That’s how the light gets in.”
    Leonard Cohen

    So gorgeous. I feel like I’m a toddler looking at all your beautiful pics, reaching out going I want I want!!!

    It kind of reminds me of the worms I occasionally see stretched out going across my wet patio stones after a rain.

      HA! I tend to think of those ones as “centipedal jellyfish” 🙂
