New WIP: Vessels

IMG_1195
The fabric has arrived! 

My vessel panels have been printed and the process of beading and embroidery begins. With the changing of the season, it seams a perfect time to participate  in a bit of meditative task. Also, I am hoping to get these into a show at the Nave gallery later this year.

Vessels protect and obscure their contents until altered by an outside force, hiding mysteries within embellished exteriors.  It is human nature to be curious about the unknown and protective of possessions. A veil also obscures while it adorns. These layers of inside and outside space, known and unknown have structured our human relationships and concepts of wealth and power since the beginning of time. Overt objects of desire, these bottles may contain an exotic scent or a deadly poison. They demand you look at them and the medium allows a glimpse through them, yet their contents remains a mystery.

Geode Treasures – new fabric designs

Geode Treasures
seamless design

Geode Treasures – a new seamless design created for my Spoonflower pattern collection -just won their Weekly Design Challenge (Feb 26-March 7, 2014). Every week, Spoonflower presents a design theme and hundreds of fabric designers submit original work for consideration then vote for their favorites. This week, the challenge was Geodes and Gemstones. It’s a theme that resonates with me and my art making so I am pleased my design peers liked it, too.

This design has a varied scatter repeat, which makes it great for larger projects.

Geode Treasures is part of a collection of new fabrics and prints based on sketches of rock formations and imaginary orbits and maps I’ve been working on and translating to seamless repeats.

See Geode Treasures at Spoonflower.
Please visit my Spoonflower Store to see many more designs by Eleanor Ramsay.
