Colours brewing in dye pots
Wrapping cloth with seaweed, shells, leaves and bark.
Creating colour with what grows locally
connects me and my work closer to this land.
I like that thought
My goal is always to express my reaction to these precious surroundings.
Brewing time allows time to think.
Thinking of this year as it comes to an end.
Thinking of this year's work
and wondering if it expresses what I wanted it to say.
Am I focused enough?
Perhaps setting a narrow focus or design element could
improve my work
make my voice clearer.
I'm working through thoughts like this as I tend my simmering pots!
One thing I know for sure
my favourite part of bundle dyeing
is the bundles themselves
and I plan to create a body of work based on simple bundles.
