June Vessel

I confess.

I am a bad blogger.

I have been working away, doing things, and just not sharing them.

I will try and rectify that.

Here is June.

In March.

I know.

June's inspiration came from the Craft College's Graduation ceremony. We have a Native Art's program and last year we had a Native Elder give a blessing at the ceremony. She spoke of the Mother Earth and how we were all part of the trees and the sky and the water. We are one with them and they are one with us.
I thought that it was lovely and made a vessel that somewhat reflected the idea.
I laid out the fleece in the approximate colours and shapes of trees and sky. Some of the trees are closer and those I stitched to give a little definition.
This one was in a gallery show and was actually purchased.
It was wonderfully validating.
