Each time I make a botanic it captures a mood, or rasa in Indian terminology. The weight of air, water, balance of petals on fabric, the clouds, wind, or sun, or the rise or phase of the moon, all affects the outcome and makes each piece its own statement in time, place, and movement. It's impossible to repeat the sentiment and more beautiful because of that.
Each dye is a poem and symphony.
Sea and Salt, limited edition. 2023 June collection.
These pieces have been hand dyed with indigo and steamed with crystal elixirs to create a beautiful blue pattern that echos the spray of the sea.
This collection was dyed by the Gulf Coast. A breezy day filled with the call of blue jays. At the end of the day, enjoyed a cantaloupe-colored sky.
