Sympathetic Evolution is a term I use a lot. I will be adding more thoughts to that concept. Here, simply, how one thing might move through another and change form.
This one is 55" square and will not grow outward. I like its simplicity. But there are still stitches to be taken.
I have loved this cloth from it’s beginning.
OH! Love that the definition of sympathetic evolution popped up. It’s something I hadn’t thought about in relation to cloth making, but I see how it fits your work. I need to ponder it. I think that is a big part of what attracts me to your cloths, but is something I have not allowed much of in mine. Lots of pondering to do . . .
I like your expression of ‘Sympathetic Evolution’. It does make sense with your cloths. I look at them and my sense is of peace and calm.
That is indeed part of it…
I like this one too Jude, the open calm of it. I also like how the wide boarder has different spots to pause, little locations – like a Highway with vistas. So, what if it were turned and you looked at it from different viewpoints? As for the red, yeah so? Bleed or not it will reflect the time in which you made this, for the pre-wash step will matter or not, process. Highway 1 fell to the sea again in Big Sur. Your boarder took me there.
your border took me there. Now that was a poem about the edge.
solice for the mind … beauty for the eye. thank you for this now . a calmness in sharing. gratitude.
I may leave it on the wall for a while. look.
Beautiful ordering of patches and added stitching. I love the wide open feel of this one.
room to think
Sympathetic Evolution – what a beautiful concept. Thank you for sharing.
it has so much to do with how my process has taken shape
I love all those browns & taupes, and the swirls add more than whimsy. What a beautiful large cloth!
It seems so calm today
such an elegant cloth!
perhaps it should remain simple.
It might need a “scar.” 🙂 Both sides, so very important to consider.
so much to consider
Love this, especially the spirals or “swirls” as I imagine a little girl “swirling” in her pretty full skirt. Remember that?
I love swirling, and whirling, I’m a dervish gal.
Love that it has two sides ( don’t we all ?)
everything has at least 2!
Bleeding seems so appropriate.
I imagine it matching the red spikes in the middle.
it does. the way it is situated, it might not be an issue anyway. I can’t remember if these reds were prewashed or not.
I love the red edge! I’d take a change and go for it ❤️
it’s already stitched so that’s that
