Three Accepted for Fabrications

I’ve just learned that three of my entries for the Columbia FiberArts Guild exhibit Fabrications have been accepted. The jurors had 70 submissions to consider and 37 were selected. This is the first exhibit I’ve entered since my move to Portland last summer. The call for this exhibit stated simply:

We are looking for creative, bold work displaying a solid command of design principles and appropriate technique.

The accepted pieces are Broken Ginkgos II (click on image for larger view)

    Congrats, Franki. Hoping I can make a trip to Portland the end of August and will surely see the show if I do.

      Hi Vivian! Thanks for the kudos. Yes, I’ve explained the process in a couple posting. You can search for broken color on my site and find it.

      I have a start, Kay. I am working on a small piece based on a photograph of tulips that I took. I blogged about that earlier.

      Hi Gurli! I have begun some new work but the pieces that were accepted for this exhibit were made before I moved. Fortunately for me, there were no time or size restrictions on this call.

    The ginkgos are lovely! They remind me of the piece we bought from you a few years ago. Glad you’re still doing them and getting even more creative on that theme. Congratulations!

      Thanks Nancy! The ginkgo is quite a recurring theme for me. I’m glad you have one of that series.
