ORANGE BEAD



I started thinking about this theme from finding information about “what is mark-making?”

Here what I’ve found:

“Mark-making is the process of applying pencil to paper or applying anything to anything! (scratching marks in plaster, using pen and ink, paint on canvas, anything that leaves a mark on the page could be considered mark making that's what is so nice about it:)

Definition:
“Mark making is a term used to describe the different lines, patterns, and textures we create in an artwork. It applies to any art material(s) we use on any surface(s), not only paint on canvas or pencil on paper. A dot made with a pencil, a line created with a pen, a swirl painted with a brush, these are all types of mark making.”
Ok, now I know for sure what mark is about!
The other question was: What I can leave as my mark?
1)      My fingertips?
2)      My hand contour?
3)      My signature?
4)      Colours- my favorites for now are violets and greens;
5)      Lines which I like- smooth
6)      The technique that I like – simple and easy to sew
After summarizing and discarding unnecessary this is what appeared.
I used some of my dyed and stamped fabrics, beads, machine and hand quilting, weaved circle.

  2. Although I dislike doing hand stitching, I enjoy seeing what other people do with the technique. The colours and movement are very harmonious, and the orange bead looks very happy where it is!

    1. Linden, just because there is only one orange bead :) It was difficult for me to find the name for this piece...

  5. As always, your piecing is incredible. I like the contrast of the orange bead; it plays nicely with the rusty patches in the fabric. Is that your embroidered initial in the corner?

    1. Judy, you mean white spot on the left from woven circle? You will laugh but I've noticed it only on photo... It is just a piece of commercial fabric

  8. This piece makes me think of all who have used stitch as mark making throughout history. It is a testament to "making by hand", something pieced, something simple, something complex, something beautiful.
