Rusted Lace 5 Rusted Lace #5
$9,000.00
Rusted Lace #5 is a continuation of the Rusted Lace series. The ground was created in 2011 using dye and rust pigmentation created by using scientific iron filings. The sculptural hand stitching was applied in 2017and then framed. The color nuances in the artwork are evident on personal inspection. There are many varied visual textures and designs flowing throughout the piece. This dynamic artwork is designed to hang in either a vertical or horizontal orientation which makes it a versatile artwork.

The rust pigmentation was completed on this piece in May of 2010. My initial reaction was that it was not successful. I added the star framing and set it aside in my pile of artworks waiting for hand stitching. I bypassed this piece for several years as it still seemed unsuccessful. In November of 2016 I finally decided that I had to either do the textural stitching on this piece or throw it away. Not being able to discard it, forced me to begin the stitching. As I progressed, the design began to come alive with each added stitch. I am now proud to call it one of my completed artworks.
 
RustedVinesandHinges.jpg Rusted Vines and Hinges
$5,700.00
Rusted Vines and Hinges is a continuation of the experimentation of using architectural ironwork to create surface design for textile wall art. Antique wrought ironwork, iron and brass hinges from the 1800s are utilized in creating the images on this heavily hand stitched artwork. The brass hinge leaves a mint green ghost image in the upper left of the piece while the two iron hinges leave much more detailed and definite images on the lower right. Once again, the artwork is designed to be displayed in either a vertical or horizontal orientation which gives the work a new appearance with each change in display.
 
Shadow of the Past.jpg Shadow of the Past
$9,000.00
Shadow of the Past has required a longer than usual completion window. This piece was begun in 2009 as my first experiment in using “old iron” that I scavenged from the woods around my studio. I used a shroud from a tractor’s radiator and a brake wheel to rust the background fabric. The pigmented fabric hung in my studio for the next several years. I couldn’t decide if it was ready for the hand stitching phase or if it needed something else. I couldn’t visualize it past this point so other work kept taking precedence over it. The dense textural hand stitching design finally floated up to my conscious level and I began working on it April to September of 2015. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
 
FlamingGrapes Flaming Grapes
$6,200.00
This is a new piece utilizing rust pigmentation and architectural ironwork to create textile artworks. A single piece of ironwork was used three times to create the center panel. Rusted Grapes was created using a section of the same piece of architectural ironwork. It is densely hand stitched around the rust pigmentation to give the piece 3-D relief emphasizing the grapes, vines, and leaves reproduced from the architectural ironwork. The area of flames is hand quilted in a random linear pattern to give the flames visual texture as well. The artwork can be easily displayed in any orientation which gives the piece a fresh perspective each time it is rotated and reinstalled. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist. **Currently on loan to US Embassy in Lima, Peru**
 
RustedGrapes Rusted Grapes Art Quilt
$800.00
The first piece in my Rust Pigmentation series is a diminutive piece measuring just 10.25” by 12.25”. The grape bunch motif is applied on a piece of dyeing canvas. My own hand dyed fabrics are used for the surrounding frame of the piece as well as the binding. The piece is heavily hand quilted in an echo motif around the grapes, branch, and leaves. A diamond grid is hand stitched in outer frame representing the wire framework grape vines are trained on in a vineyard. This piece is designed to be displayed in any orientation. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.

RustedLace2.jpg Rusted Lace #2
$4,000.00
Second textile artwork from the Rusted Lace series created on a piece of my hand dyed fabric. The main design was created using iron filings in a paper cutout that turned to rust with the addition of water and salt. Dense and intricate hand stitching in various colors of thread were used to create the visual as well as physical texture of the piece which is evident when seen in person. The overall design reveals itself subtly on closer inspection. As the piece is rotated, subtle shifts in design and color emerge making this piece truly unique and designed to be easily displayed in any orientation. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
 
Rusted Lace 3.jpg Rusted Lace #3
$4,600.00
Rusted Lace #3 continues the exploration of scientific iron filings on hand dyed fabric to create lacy looking pieces in the Rusted Lace series. Various values of orange are the predominant colors in this particular art quilt. Whole cloth construction with Proxion dyes created the basis for the artwork. Dense hand stitching created the visual and physical texture that is evident even in the photography. Installation of this piece can be in either a vertical or horizontal orientation which really opens up the display options for this work. Merging this artwork with any or all of the other pieces in the series creates a very interesting contemporary artwork with infinite shape possibilities. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
 
Rusted Lace 4.jpg Rusted Lace #4
$5,100.00
The fourth addition to the Rusted Lace series of textile artworks, Rusted Lace #4, continues the pattern of having two pieces created from a similar hand dyed coloration (in this case a burnt orange). The repeating graphic design is created using scientific iron filings during the base fabric’s rusting process. Extremely dense hand stitching emphasizes the rust pigmentation design and gives the piece a physical as well as visual texture. This piece is designed to be displayed in a vertical or horizontal orientation and fits very well into a series display with the other pieces in the series. Purchased artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
