Small and Affordable..... ain't nobody got time for that
These barns are small, they can be affordable if I choose to make them that way, but, shit, man, they take a lot of time, and "affordable" is a relative term. Affordable for whom? not me, that's for sure. If I price these at what everyday shoppers are willing to pay, I will make very little. But apparently I need to add a small and affordable item to my inventory. I went over to Raleigh and picked up my work from The Collectors Gallery. Closing their doors, yes they are. Too bad, I had such hopes for success with them, and they were such nice people..... folks need "affordable" art these days.
Weaving news: I finally got my loom all set up and I started weaving last night. I am hooked, I am on the weaver path, I do believe. I want a loom, I want to sit at it all day and pass yarn through the shed and count my pattern.....
3, 2 and 4, 6 3, 2 and 4, 6.... bliss. Counting and pattern and yarn and color and order and balance, weaving is definitely for a Libra mind!
For those of you that know about the weaving stuff, I am making a huck lace sampler scarf in an indigo blue and I got about 18 inches done last night and the fringe. It is beautiful and I can't wait to finish it!
It's going to be interesting to see where clay and fiber meet in the coming months...... if I can get some time for either one of them!!
