Fire’n Rain

July 20, 2009


FireRainWebUsing the theme of Fire and Rain, this vessel is executed with hand dyed merino wool.  I like the hand of this vessel as it s pliable, soft and yet it holds it;s shape.  I have yet to acquire a proper camera that  replicates in a consistent digital image so the vessel looks asymmetrical. Then, again this felt is a bit softer than the other vessels. The fire colors are hand dyed  with the aid of a microwave using acid dyes.  Protein  fibers requires heat and  an acid to keep the dyes  within the cell membrane of the fibers.Vessel-4aWEb
