Things that become other things. Background pages. Paper scrolls. Little collages that will one day be a part of something bigger.
Do you like stitching on paper? I recently cleaned my sewing machine and now it’s zipping along like a brand new machine, so of course I’m sewing on everything. These might become little book covers. I haven’t decided. Right now I’m enjoying them in this intermediate state.
At a recent art show I sat next to a jewelry maker. We talked about the pleasure of making components before you knew how you would be using them.
I’m not a jewelry maker, but I do like to string things together. There’s something primordial and nurturing about it. Very satisfying.
