Landscape in Primary Colors
Coiled abstract vessel-traditional shape
1 in stock
Landscape in Primary Colors is a traditionally shaped vessel, coiled using a closed figure-8 stitch. This piece was inspired by the reddish-orange hues of desert mountains at sunset. Often, if there are storm clouds, the sun will reflect across the bottoms of the clouds creating a beautiful yellow band along the horizon. I used a thin, coppery colored cotton thread in all of the yarn bundles to unify the three primary color areas of the piece. Bundling several colors in the needle is a signature element of my work. Random stitches using a single green thread were stitched in the red/land area of the piece to represent the sparse desert vegetation and single strands of yellow in the blue region, blue in the yellow region stitched into the spaces between rows reflect horizontal streaks of color in the darkening sky. The core of the piece is jute and the yarns are mercerized and unmercerized cotton. Free Shipping within USA!

Welcome to my Artizan Made Market Shop! Have fun exploring the world of color with me through my work! I create unique, abstract coiled and sculptural vessels inspired by music and the natural world. Each of my pieces is an experimental exploration of the interactions of color and the melodies and counterpoint of different design elements. Working in the fiber medium brings unique challenges as I adapt the design of a piece to the continually curving surface of the vessel’s form and the effects of light reflected from different yarns and fibers creates an additional dimension to each piece, which changes as the light source changes. Blending colors is a hallmark of my work, not just in the designs of my pieces but within the color areas of each piece. I often use variegated knitting yarns in my pieces which I find are endlessly inspirational. If you don't see something you'd like from my current inventory, I would be happy to discuss creating a unique and original piece just for you.
