Stained Glass XXIV
(Above: Stained Glass XXIV, full view. Polyester stretch velvets, previously painted heat activated adhesive/Wonder Under, metallic foiling, chiffon scarves, free motion machine embroidery using 100% black cotton quilting thread, melting. Unframed: 58" x 18"; Framed: 64 1/2" x 24 1/2". Click on image to enlarge.)
For last week's annual autumn art crawl, Vista Lights, I had this piece stapled onto stretcher bars I use during the melting process. I'd soldered about half the holes. I also had Stained Glass XXV on my table, under construction.
People coming through my studio at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios really seem to enjoy seeing the work in the various stages of development. Since then, I finished this piece and am now melting the next one. I've got three more designed....more than enough to do over the Thanksgiving holiday!
