Since my post last week I have been working on the piece shown here and another one that also uses ice resin. You can see my other ice resin piece with digitally printed papers on kathyannewhite.blogspot.com. Both pieces have one thing in common in that I haven’t worked this way before. For the piece here I am still working out the layers in my mind and will be working other layers above and below as I work the solutions out. For now I am appreciating some interesting textures and a path of creation that has tons of possibilities for future pieces.
After catching up on most of my deadlines – new ones approach. Working on some ideas with digital prints and ice resin today. This one entails recycled bottle caps that I filled with the resin and floated waxed linen, digital prints on beverage cans, beads, wire and some pieces of digitally printed printers plates. At the present moment I am crocheting one of the layer bases with 22 gauge bronze wire (from Art Mechanique). I have no real idea of where this is going, but I have been thinking about it all week and just need to dive in. This represents what might be 2 layers of a multi textural piece in the works!
For the something old, I have the completed journal quilts as samples for a workshop I will be teaching at the Fuller Craft Museum September 2012. Contact me for the date a description.
