I’ve been really busy – new happenings! I will be teaching a 5 week workshop in Surface Design at Yavapai College in Prescott, fall term 2008. We will work with dyes and then digital surface design. The class will meet on Tues and Thurs nights at 5:30 – 8:15. My intention is to teach basic techniques and allow students to push a technique to see where it may lead. Should be a great class! Yavapai is a fabulous school and I am delighted to be teaching there.
As for this artwork, Forest Surfaces, ३ is my latest piece. It is composed of around 7 layers. These layers include a substrate I created from gel media, dyed cheesecloth and inkAID printed, printed tyvec that is sewn to crocheted steel wire and heat distressed, printed lace paper, printed dyed canvas, copper mesh and aluminum screen mesh. All the layers are attached together with steel wire and copper wire on copper mesh.
