a summer full of nuances

orton oversion

summer is closing and friends are coming back to town. this morning had a catch up breakfast and my posting routine got pleasantly altered.

here's another 6 month shibori. it lived for three weeks in december in the pomegranate soup on my balcony. the molds in the liquid, the invisible friendly foes, did their thing .when i took the scarf out from the soup i almost fainted when i saw those dots. but then thinking about it it was kind of cool getting random patterning with no effort, sort of mindless patterning.
thinking along those lines i wrapped  some onion skins and let them to act as freely as they wanted. by then it was already february.the scarf spent spring  quietly developing some of its  qualities.

and then came summer. and ai. and dip one  and two and three. and still too pale.

  4. Isn't it wonderful what patience can do? You'd never get a piece this incredibly beautiful if you insisted on hurrying.

  5. Questo risultato è incredibile. Non posso credere che l'hai lasciato così a lungo a 'maturare' senza diventare impaziente...
    L'accostamento dei colori è molto gradevole.


interaction appreciated!
