Back to the Roots....

Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my friend who had just returned from taking a class with Dorothy Caldwell. Melanie showed me this marvelous hand bound book of some exercises they had done during the class. I was inspired! It has been awhile since I've messed around with textiles but this morning I grabbed some previously dyed organza, plunged it into a coffee/tea bath (to further stain and earth-i-tize it), then burned it using a candle and incense stick. It remains to be seen where the journey will go from here...perhaps some handstitching...perhaps some more embellishments...we shall see...but isn't it tres organic and rustic looking?
