I Beat the Deadline!

Wending Onward
(c)2009 Cindi Huss

I made this 18" x 18" piece for the Surface Design Association's member exhibit, Surface Matters. This and a plethora of other surface design/fiber exhibits will hang at galleries in the Crossroads Art District in downtown KC, MO and will open in conjunction with the SDA's biennial conference (at Kansas City Art Institute and the Marriott Country Club Plaza) and run through the summer.

I finished it yesterday. Had a couple of very late nights (the latest was 4 a.m.), but it's done and sent! Woo-hoo! Here's a detail:

This hand-dyed bas relief includes needle felting and extreme quilting.

How did I pull this off? Through the understanding and accomodating attitudes of my wonderful family, especially my husband Bob. Jeg er så glad i deg, elskede.

So cool! Haven't decided yet if I'm attending--probably should make up my mind soon. Are you making the trek again? And is there a pic. of your piece floating around in the ether somewhere?

A striking design...hope it makes the show. And belated thanks for sending the Jan M-N shibori. Wish we could get together for a few days of dying...

Cindi said...

Hey, Casey--truly, if you ever want to run away from home and come here to dye, let me know! We can both get ourselves set up with a mini stash.

This is such a stunning piece! Great depth and color.

Thanks, Judy. Sorry it took me so long to notice your comment. This piece came together almost magically--I just love when that happens. Wish it'd happen more, but I guess it's more precious when it's more scarce.
