I finished and was finally able to get some good photos of my Crossing To Safety Potholders.
I named them after the book by William Stegner. I have to admit I’m feeling kind of protective of them. A part of me wants to keep them all safe with me. But, of course, that’s now why I make my art. I make it to connect to other people. I make it so it can go out into the world and do its work.
I see these potholders, with their house-like shapes as simple drawings in fabric. Each with its own story to tell.
Even the flowers are awkward and odd. They are all like the misfits of the world finding their place. They are me, many of the people I know and I’m sure many of the people reading this.
Here’s a few close up….
