Part art quilt, part nature study, and ode to indigo and and my collection of black forest cuckoo clocks. Made from a magpie collection of things: vintage Japanese indigo cloth, hand dyed sashiko thread, vintage eyelets and trims, and barkcloth fabric remnants. Handstitched and embroidered. The vintage cuckoo clock frame is a dark brown toned wood, adorned with leaves.
There is a small loop on the back for hanging.
The Found and Foraged Collection has been an idea in the making for a long time. My thought was to create a way to inspire me to keep producing original work. So often, when a creative passion turns into a business, the process can become overwhelmingly uninspiring. I don’t want that to happen. So why not challenge myself to create new pieces of art? New pieces that allow me to play with new creative ideas, concepts, and materials. It has been pure joy to work on these pieces
