these are the ones on the table...can see them more clearly here. they are my favorites and really only two are finished. and mostly from Spirit Cloth work...the first workshop.
to clarify...these won't go on this big cloth. i just wanted to look at what i'd done...look for continuity in Theme? my guess is that the big cloth will have some similarities but be more complex. it also won't be woven. or, maybe parts might be, but not woven like jenny's Daughter cloth. and back to nance's thought about a center...i think the center might move as it goes??? that it might be just many moments in time? i really love thinking about it.
here are the pots:
the cast iron...rusty...is where it began....just water and onion skins. uncovered, it evaporates pretty quickly. once, last summer, i let it completely dry out and got some beautiful forms that actually were black, come to think about it. Helen, you have a little piece of that. it's also the largest piece on the "Clothesline" cloth above. i hadn't thought about that until i am typing this in this moment. funny how it goes.
anyway...in the cast iron pot for a couple days till a good "green" is achieved, then all goes into the copper pot. water added if necessary. then i hung them to dry in Sun. last step was to swish in the Colorhue black. today is day 2 in the cast iron....drama. the jar has geranium dead heads from Alz.B's front walkway yesterday. i'll stick some cloth in there today and see what happens.
