Harmony

“Happiness is when what you think, say, and do are in harmony.” Based on a Gandhi quote.

Sealant applied to protect the rust paper and to secure the fiber.

Details of the rust paper, code, and binding. The piece is still damp from the sealant.

Idea for the piece was the result of seeing the vent over the door to the laundry room.

Harmony

Hung the piece over the door inside the guest bathroom.

After it is hung for a few days, I will attach a piece of foam tape to the bottom. It will secure the piece and prevent it from moving about every time the door is opened and closed.


Book Gift–Indelible Mark

The quote is from the movie-Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont.

Replaced Closure
Wasn’t keen on the paper closure, so I used hemp to knit an I-cord. Added pit-fired beads to the cord ends.

Thinking of You Greeting

My niece is in an PhD/MD program. She is now a PhD doctor and recently started her medical rotations. Since she will have no time for gardening or much of anything other than work. I made her a little greeting with a few dried plants from my gardens.

Interesting that I did not use any code. Good thing?

The monoprints are peculiar in that they are not my typical palette. Well, when I was working in clay I used some lead glazes that resulted in gorgeous orange surfaces.

I used a sealant on the pages that was to have been matte. The shiny surfaces made it complicated to take photos. I repeatedly took them, over and over and over. Need to mail the card today. Time to stop.

These were taken on a piece of cork, near a north east window, with diffused light.
