A new passion

Well it’s not all that new. I have been fascinated by “surface design” since I took an ongoing class in the 1980s. We learned to design and silk screen print our own fabric.

Things are much easier to produce now! The computer is a great aid in figuring out accurate repeats (how the design will repeat seamlessly forever). And “print on demand” sources mean that a little or a lot of fabrics, home linens and other products are produced.

Go with the Flow

And this pandemic has really changed our flow, hasn’t it? Voluntary quarantine and isolation affect each of us differently. Most creative types welcome a chunk of time without interruption. Of course you do need supplies and food, right? And it’s spring garden time, right? Yup there are distractions!

But I’ve finally burst through the creative block, and the work is flowing again. Shown here is a trio of necklaces.

The top one features a polymer clay mokume gane focal bead, bounded by Murano glass foil-lined beads on a leather cord.

I’ve resisted the glorious windswept clouds and the outdoors for a relaxing and productive day, creating in the studio.
