Depth of Field Shibori

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

After finishing today’s pieces, I truly get the title of Jan’s class — Depth of Field Shibori. This piece probably is the best example.


Here is a detail:


This piece was shibori wrapped and dyed and then underpainted with a gradation of dyes and then shibori wrapped and dyed in a dark dye. Oh, I love this.

Here is more of the work.

This piece was first shibori wrapped and then dyed in bright orange. Today, I rewrapped it and dyed it in violet – yowza!!


Here is the chopstick piece from yesterday. Today, I wrapped it with chopsticks again and dyed it in chartreuse.chopstickfoldedshibori

The next piece was the one I laid on top of an underdyed fabric while it was still wet and then I smooshed it. Today, I did the rope trick with it. Love it.


Here is a detail.


I just had to show Sheila and her mammogram quilt. She used CD clamps for this. Someone said it looked like a mammogram for a dog – LOL.


Here is the very talented and lovely Constance Rose, working away, rinsing dyed pieces.


I have more luscious work to show, but it will have to wait for tomorrow. I have to post my window quilt on the 12 X 12 site. Be sure to take a look through our windows.
