DENIM AND RUFFLES

What fun!  A four day class in Phoenix with a teacher I’ve been wanting to meet for a long time – Lisa Becker – at the Milkweed Arts Studio.  I’ve been intrigued with the notion of casting fabrics and it was every bit as exciting as I imagined.  Here’s the piece I created – a baby’s jacket of denim and ruffles.  The casting captures every tiny detail of the fabric, down to the threads in the buttons!  Still have some finishing work to do and attach some hardware for hanging, but I’m definitely going to be doing more of these.
