Spinning in 2022

I seem to have the most time to explore and spin yarn in the beginning of the year. This year I had a nice stock of hand dyed fiber from Edgewood Garden Studio to work with. The top row of yarns stuck with a single package of fiber, but the bottom two combined two different fiber packs to create each yarn. The first paired two strands of gray with a third spun from vibrant colors. The second use the other half of the vibrant yarn paired with a similarly vibrant blue. It’s very interesting to see how the color comes to the front with the gray, but becomes an accent with the blue.

Prints: Untitled, 2021

After the better part of the year making sense of the archives, cataloging work, and sketching out new ideas, it was a treat to get back out to the workshop this fall and actually pull some ink and make some new prints.

This series uses a directional motif that I’ve been thinking about lately and haven’t been able to shake. So, of course, I had to work it out of my system by making it real. Some people have said it reminds them of a castle or flags or mountains – interpretations that are all fine by me.

Each piece features a slightly random sampling of colors, topping out at six colors on some prints. Colors were mixed and applied on the fly and in the moment, so most pieces are unique one-offs while a few ended up in editions of two. Most are printed on white cover stock while a few are on gray, kraft, or chipboard.

All prints “Untitled, 2021″ at 8″ x 10” each.
