Journal - 06.25.20

I love the richness of tone on tone in one color range.  This close-up is a pixelated blanket that is cut from 100% recycled wool and cashmere sweaters.  The idea of the ‘pixelated’ layout came to be because of the volume of waste generated by the other blankets I make with larger components.  The three-inch squares used here keep my ‘scrap factor’ to a minimum and that scrap gets used for ottomans, ragamuffins and more.

In addition to a commitment to recycling I have what is possibly a fetish for color.  There is something luminescent about the way wool and other animal fibers like alpaca, mohair, and cashmere hold color.  It reminds me of stained glass.

I remember as a kid being asked my favorite color and it was always just too hard to pick just one.  I am particularly drawn to color combinations, textural variations, subtle differences.

If you are interested in learning more about the work I do pop over to my website.  There is a link in my bio and I’d love to show you around.
