I'm working with clay this week on vacation! I'd forgotten what fun it is to try something new. Much as I shy away from featuring my own work, I just had to show you this.
I have kept printouts from fiber artist Liz Alpert Fay in my idea book and decided to build a cane similar to her "Compass Variations" hooked rug as an exercise in pattern deconstruction and cane building.
I'm not so sure they work as beads but the flat cane slices are spot on the original pattern. I've got to hand it to Lindly Haunani and Maggie Maggio. Had it not been for their color coaching over the years, I'd never have been able to do this. And many thanks to Liz Alpert Fay for her great rugs, pillows and inspirations.
