Cynthia Catlin - "Erosion at its Best!"


This is “Erosion at its Best!” I am currently having a love affair with fabric vases. They are three dimensional, decorative, functional, and extremely addictive. This was an extremely ambitious adventure and the largest one that I have created at 28 inches tall. The silk fabric was acquired already painted and I stabilized it with a combination of Soft & Stable and Pellon. A large variety of fun beads were used for embellishment. Machine quilting was added for a textural element. More fabric vases in my future, Cynthia Catlin.

“While the theme conjures up images in the mind of the viewer, the amazingly original art work provides insights into each artist’s individual vision and their interpretations of the subject. The diversity of their dreams is truly a gift.”

"Tough Old Bird" by Eileen Wintemute
 
This piece was created for Beyond the Edge's "Put A Bird On It!" exhibit. This is what Eileen has to say about this piece:

"This is Roy, and you will probably appreciate this if you have a "Roy" in your life. You know the sort: salt of the earth,  worked hard to make his way through life,  sticks to old school principles.  Roy is the kind of person that I have found worth knowing. All in all, he's one tough old bird."
