Raw Material

17 12 2012

My favorite textile medium–100% cotton. It’s not slippery like satin, filmy like voile, plush like velvet, fuzzy like fleece or minkie, thick like leather, ravelly like silk, or shiny like polyester.

It’s just good old, sturdy woven cotton!

And now that I live in the sunny south, in late fall and early winter I often drive by fields of harvested cotton. In the distance, notice the huge bales wrapped in yellow plastic. In the foreground is a patch of unharvested stalks.thanksgiving 2012 233

Cotton–it’s the raw material for my material obsession!
