Maria spent several days working in her very cold studio – the heat usually works well, but – 20 taxes the baseboard heating system a bit – and just about finished it. But last night, chilled to the bone, she came into the house to finish it at the dining room table.
It is a hanging piece, "Circle Of Women," a striking work made from vintage fabrics, felt from a shoe liner and dolls mailed from the Midwest, and it speaks for itself. Like many others, I love the creative way Maria weaves so many disparate things into one whole.
She finished it this morning (back in her studio) and it will go on sale tomorrow on her blog for $200 plus shipping. You can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the story of this piece here.
