an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
There is lots of fabulous stuff on our tables. Here is some new work from Robin Douglas, who joined the Summit recently. The large Flower is about ten inches in diameter; it’s meant for our Runway Show in San Diego. Stunning!
This cuff has an exciting vertical stripe on the inner layer. Very time-consuming and beautiful… and beautifully made of course.
Dustin Wedekind put one of his neat Funnel Web Rings (a Volume III project) on a little Breyer horse.
Deb Benson joins us this morning – this is one of her pieces.
Katherine Kosta’s work continues to astound; I’ve taken hundreds of photos of the box of work she brought with her, and will share them as they move through image processing (I do quite a bit of hand work on my shots) and in Volume III. This piece is a nice reminder that Rick-Rack does not have to be built with even Points. You can simply skip (by passing through or using separate thread) some sections as you proceed; I love the visuals in this one.
And look at this interesting study of joined Wingtips. Ah, the colourways…
Sarah Loudon made more progress on her piece; note the addition of mother of pearl rounds to an Elegant Guide Round, and the beginning of another direction, with an orange round.
I plan to Explode something off of one of Laura Shea’s flat geometrics this afternoon. I’m still working on this photograph (apologies for rough edges) but you get the idea. Glorious forms!
Today, I’m going to photograph some of Sheila Prosterman’s pieces.. wait until you see her flower. And her MRAW vessel with Horns. I am loving this so much…. thanks for following along!
