gorgeous!and tent sized too...ps - thanks 2UI found Habujust a jog from one country town to another,xox - eb.
Ha! Yes, the triple circle is definitely tent sized. We could fit at least 2 or 3 under it...maybe even 4.You found Habu...Did you go into NYC or truly find it in another country town?Just curious and very jealous if you did venture to Habu.One day, I'll get there.One day soon, I hope.Until then,I'm so enjoying your wrapping of stones with Habu.Enjoy, J
from Charlotteover hill and dalethrough the woodsto WillistonNE Fiber Artsa small selectionbut I treasure the 2 that I brought home...xox - eb.
Only 2?How was it possible to resist buying more?My first purchase was for at least 5...or was it 8?Then again, it may have been 9,my favorite numberfor some unknown reason.Of course, my Habuis patiently waiting for me to do something with them, while yoursis already playing.What fun! J
you make such fun ~rusty~magic!
Oh...I just bundle and wrapand let the elements do their magic.It is such fun though!Enjoy, Jennifer
Oh yum! I love the unwrapping shots - such lovely folds and all. I used barbed wire today and all the little bits of rust fell off and a few of the barbs we had to snip so I saved them all, just in case I go a'rusting!
Barbed wire...wow! A length of rusty barbed wire should make for an interesting line of rust, but that probably isn't what you were using it for, is it? Glad you like the shots. This is the triple circle that just had to be tried - two gears together and a pain to turn when wrapped, but oh! so delightful to unwrap. The largest piece so far at 90" x 72". Need to do another for cutting up into smaller pieces. Have a great weekend!
really nice results
Thanks Jude! I must admit that this first triple circle is one of my favorites.
i agree with jude. are you doing a happy dance?!
A happy dance? Oh yes. I danced all around the studio after unwrapping this one...quietly, of course, so as to not wake my sleeping husband and daughters. Am thinking of the next triple circle to attempt - size, to use tea or not, etc.Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment! Enjoy, Jennifer
So beautiful. I love the scale of this piece of cloth. I love the simplicity of the design. Have you shared your recipe in this blog? I've started to do some rust with rayon fabric and white vinegar soak. When do you add the tea? To repeat - beautiful cloth.
Considering how much I love your large work, how it resonates with me and inspires me...well...not to get overly gushy, but it is an honor that you like my cloth. Thank you.As for my recipe...that brings a chuckle because there is no set recipe. The cloth can soak for an hour or a week in vinegar or tea or a combination and can then rust overnight or over a week. There's a method to my madness that all depends on how I feel and I think on any given day. Not helpful I'm sure, but honest. It's all what if, just do it, keep it simple and focus.
Thanks!That's all I need. It's how I work too.x
You're very welcome. Can't wait to see your rusty cloth! Enjoy.
