poetics in color


silk dyed with madder. the foreground yarn was overdyed  with pomegranate and  left in the dye for a week. excuse the ties.
the next experiment is going to be with persimmon. getting the colors ready for a colorful warp.

this has been going round and round in my head for some days now:
the man who puts his arm around your shoulders when the winds blow cold.

  1. Forgive me, but what kind of fiber is this?

  2. i know that man!

    and the color is good and strong.

  3. Neki, I always like to use purple madder to mix colours when I was painting...I loved it and got some weird and wonderful results.

    Your dyes are wonderful

  4. What's your process with persimmons? Do you use the hachiya or the fuyu type? I love fuyu, eat them like apples, so I'm not sure I'd be likely to sacrifice any of them to the dyepot!


interaction appreciated!
