While I focus on lace, I have incorporated felt into that lace, which will be a component of some of the tests I will do at The Anderson Ranch Arts Center. To find out more about my project to cast lace sculpture, please check out THE ASPEN ADVENTURE on Kickstarter.
An example of such felt lace can be see in Seeing the Signs. While it can appear opaque, a bit of back light proves otherwise.
I am certain this sheer play of felt, thread and color can go farther, so one of my samples that I have prepared for my time at The Anderson Ranch Arts Center includes this technique to test translucency in the casting process.
This sunshine yellow hand-dyed wool absolutely glows when back-lit.
But is a yummy sunshine yellow even when it’s not back lit! I included hints of melon and orange wool for accents as well. Just for flavor.
