I'm back in the shop and this is how I'm coping. (Hardy-har-har). I'm in the process of hand cutting a few engravings I just made on copper. They are unusual little items. There will be a couple of you who instantly recognize what they are 😉 If not, look out for the next few posts in which I'll show close up photos, explain what they are and the inspiration behind them. #workwithyourhands .

18th-century newlyweds in France would record the beginning of their married life by creating a wedding dome – or globe de mariée. The dome was used to preserve the couple's wedding souvenirs and share hopes for their lives together. This year, leading haberdashery brand V V Rouleaux is set to revive this beautiful tradition in the heart of London by hosting a reader’s workshop at their Marylebone Lane shop.

Shopping #ethically is so much more than the beautiful prints and patterns that represent the cultural diversity in our world. It is about an appreciation and respect for the artisans that make these products and their culture. Next time you are out shopping for that unique piece to add to your wardrobe or home, pay attention to how it was made and who made it. Don't replicate or appropriate the stories and identities being represented. Protect the intellectual property of artisans around the globe!

It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!! ... See MoreSee Less

I am now being represented in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico!!  Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the United States.The emphasis this month is Cosmos flowers.  These three pieces include the flowers.  Oreo - the new Bull calf was born at our ranch in New Mexico a month ago.  I am now covering the entire art in thread with no free motion quilting.  I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image.  My art is now framed.  My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint.  It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!!

Yesterday we received an email from Lisa of Art Glass Array/The Glass Knot that tugged at our heartstrings:

"I came home from teaching at my studio one evening to the recent issue of Handmade Business in 'my spot' and a note from my seven year-old daughter. It said, 'Hey, it is Lydia. Mom I left you a art magazine on your seat.' As I was reading, I was pleasantly surprised to find my gallery and teaching facility, Art Glass Array mentioned in your 111 Glorious Glass Galleries article. Thanks for the mention! I am celebrating nearly 10 years as a "brick and mortar" and have been subscribing since back in the years of The Crafts Report."

Thank you, Lisa and please say thanks to Lydia for us!

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.
