Blue Fiber Forest

It started with an idea of taking part in the contest. The general theme was "all kinds of fibers". And my first thought was "the forest of fibers" ! Unfortunately life had other plans for me than taking part in the contest but... the seed was sown 🙂 I pulled out all the different types of fabric to build the forest. Fibers galore 100 % natural  - cotton, linen, wool, silk, all of different weights and structures to play with textures. Felted wool on heavily textured linen and plain, thin cotton. With tiny shiny silk trees here and there. And all this in blue (hand dyed by myself!) with hints of red or purple.  Here it is in a full view: It is 18 x 32 in and available for sale HERE.   My newsletter subscribers already know about the changes I'm making in my online presence so here is short info for the rest of you (you better be a subscriber, I tell you - subscribe HERE):
  • I'm slowly withdrawing my art from Etsy (if you want something, buy now!)
  • I will keep Etsy open only for crafty things and custom orders
  • Now the places where you can buy some of my works are HERE and (bigger and more expensive) HERE
  • Of course you're always welcome to contact me directly if you want something special or can't find what you're looking for  🙂

To the light!

With the days getting shorter dramatically I'm rather happy to blog about a textile work I made earlier this summer - "Light in the forest".

Despite its darkness it is all about light. It was like walking through the dark, purple forest with the promise of sunny spot at the end. The whole piece is rather big (as for me, who usually works in a small scale) 23 x 34 inches and filled with all the scrumptious details: I've used mostly silks for trees and plants and hand dyed cotton for the light part. The combination of silks and beads makes it a bit tricky to photograph, hence the colors' differences. If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, please, fix it now: @bozena_wojtaszek) you had seen the progress pictures for quite a long time as it took a while to complete this monster. But it was a very pleasant journey to the light 🙂 And yes, of course, I made it available in a print form too 🙂 Hope the autumn days won't be totally dark and dull but in the worst case we still have art, don't we?
