Yesterday I got the idea to make a Flying Vulva Potholder.
I came up with this drawing last night and started working on stitching it this morning.
I practiced stitching it on a Vintage Linen Napkin, which is fitting, but also have a linen table runner that I thing might work well.
I was thinking of making some as small Flying Vulva Fabric Paintings too. I could try stitching those on a Vintage Hankie…
10 thoughts on “The Flying Vulva”
Do we really need these – some things just go TO FAR
The vulvas on wing
It’s beautiful thing
My morning began
With a smile
Can the labias lead?
Will the patriarch cede?
Has the status quo
Rise up! And fly high
Leave the paradigms lie
Wear your pussy hats
Choose our most gifted.
Oh Cheryl, I have to reprint your poem on my blog! I just love it and it says it all! Thank you!!
It appears you are resurfacing your “genital artistic themes” again… your goddesses in the past were examples of this style but changed (evolved?) with clothing… not sure why… would love to hear your thought process… you had a short lived tote bag series that prominently displayed “femininity” but disappeared in a heart beat… commercial pressures…? Jon described your announcement of this new line as “you beaming”… your artistic thoughts are …? Any concerns about the families with children who come to your site & Jon’s… do you feel the need to alert them to the content as it may not be what they want to explain to their children without some “advanced notice”
wow That’s a lot of questions. I’ll be writing about my process in making the Flying Vulva, but yesterday I was into making it. It’s a process and I don’t like to think about what I’m doing too much when I’m making it, but allow it to happen. Don’t want the brain to get in the way of being creative.
yea , not a fan
genitals on pot holders? really?
I agree with Terri
Why not Robin, Potholders are my art form. And As Ellen says, it’s just another part of our body, nothing to be ashamed of. And of course it’s more than than too. A statement about women and freedom and our changing place in the world.
Oh Maria, I love everything about these. And, yes Teri, we need these. Or I do anyway. And if you have been watching the news from our borders, I’d posit the whole damn country needs a bunch of good vulva medicine. I have been to McAllen Texas volunteering and I can tell you it is 1938 Germany down there. We need all the vulvas we can get.
I hardly think a vulva will scar a child. It’s a body part. You know, arms, noses, vulvas etc. We might be able to avoid the warning labels for a while yet.
Yes, more Vulva’s Ellen, that’s the right cry. I’m curious about your work in Texas.
More of an “anything goes world.” Maria, I am disappointed to see this pot holder.
