The smallest of the grouping, yet the one that draws me in each visit. There's a joy, a freedom to these marks as they dance and sing their way around the vessel that is contagious.
On a table nearby sits the vase of Debra Steidel who, like Pam and I, is a former member of Fiberworks at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA. In fact, Fiberworks is where Pam and I met.
Looking at these favored vessels and their marks set me on a search for other favored markings.
Pam's work on copper.
Detail of Pam's hand-stitching.
New rust on cotton.
Rust on paper towel...much nicer than what printed on the cotton.
Ink on paper - Pam's.
Ink on print table caused by hole in padding.
Remnants of story written by Pam.
Nature's marks. Been a lot of this during the week.
Pam and I machine stitching even more marks.
