Demonstrating at Saluda Shoals Park
(All images can be clicked for a larger view!)
The leaf project is done at last. It was fun and exhausting. Steve and I hauled all seven tree stumps out to the shelter in which I spent the rest of the day demonstrating how felt leaves are created. Hundreds of people came, watched, admired the leaves and all my fiber vessels. It was over ninety degrees. At the end of the day, we hauled everything back home and to my studio. I would have loved to postpone some of the unpacking....but, I'm leaving for London tomorrow! I still haven't thought about packing and I've got so many other things to arrange before leaving...naturally, I'm blogging instead!
Below are all sorts of pictures...none of which I particularly like because I'm in them. I prefer to be on the other side of the camera. Alex took these photos (I took the rest long before the crowds arrived). He loved coming out to the park on his moped and will hopefully soon be creating a little video of all the pictures he took.
These last photos are details of the installation of leaves, vessels, and tree stumps. Nature can both inspire my work and be part of it!
