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.

What does it mean to go on a cosmic journey? Spoonflower artists were challenged to create designs exploring this theme in June 2014. I’d been creating some bold geometric space-like prints influenced by a long cold winter listening to Sun Ra. So, I took some of these ideas and created this collection inspired by the Cosmos, Mythology and Afro-futurism.
