Lark Books Applique, etc — prepared to be harassed by every little step of this piece!!!

So I’ve discovered (all b/c of my good friend Mary Nehring, an excellent Versailles KY textile art) the wonders of freezer paper – the applique design is sketched on the back and tonight with a bit of luck and all my ocd powers, I will attempt to cut it out and pin it down (this [...]

Review of "Cotton Candy Bunny Ears"

The exhibition, “Pattern and Decoration” (a reference, perhaps an obtuse one, to the heavily-decorative 1970s movement called Pattern & Decoration – Elizabeth Murray was a big artist in it). Yoko’s [...]

Elizabeth’s pieces hover in the air, and from some angles (as show here), her work is transposed on mine. I’ll very happy with the way the [...]
