Leisa, Thanks for connecting. No, the ear is not medical. . .this piece is about (and for) my son, Ky. It is specifically about how I have been able to experience the world through him: his interest in magnifying glasses to inspect small things, for instance. The vine growing out of the ear (which was literally sculpted while I observed his ear) references the story that children are told when they swallow a melon seed--that it will grow inside of them, and possibly out their ears. Hope that clarifies! Leah
Believe me, I do already! (mix fibers in with my work) Hoping to work this summer on a series of figurative hybrid doll-forms -- traditional textile materials mostly, with found and fabricated objects glommed on.
I was delighted to get you note that was filled with compliments of my works.
I would like t thank you for the invite to your amazing exhibit of Fiber Arts creations. You are a very dynamic and expressive artist. I love your colors and admire the messages and the size of your pieces. I would love to visit your exhibits and hoping you will let me know where I could see your works.
Coming from the world of Woodworking (for 27 years)... precision is one of my strengths and it comes across in my paper creations.
Thank you so much! I am such a fan of your work too. I absolutely love your installation work-the scale, form, and meticulous qualities are spectacular. And, wow, are you prolific! I would love to be involved in the exhibition and I am honored that you considered my work.
My email address is email@example.com
Looking forward to further communications with you.
