This ongoing series of container-like forms reflects my continued exploration of pattern and color. The forms are classic and simple in contrast to the patterns which are constructed into them. Stitch by stitch and row by row the form slowly grows. Each completed form stands as a record of the particular event or thought which I was trying to convey and also of the large amounts of time which went into its construction.
Color and pattern always have a source. For me the landscape is both the source and the inspiration. Colors and shapes seen when walking in the woods, tending my gardens or just being outdoors have provided me an unending flow of ideas. To aid my memory I frequently carry a camera to record things I find of particular interest.
