perhaps you're remembering the "orange peel" which is like a little refuse to most of us, as what it truly it--a sacred object; skin of something nourishing carried into life... its lovely.
Love these! They remind me of Cephalotus pitcher plants, a small genus of happy little insectivorous squidgies found only in a wee corner of southwestern Australia! Something like the more common Nepenthes, too!Skin and covering, stitching the blankets on: in winter, you've always been one for cocooning! And hey, is it not from cocoons that we can get threads as well? Loop around, as always!Stay warm, sister.
Hi :DI want do it this!!^_^
Small things is still things, and good things they are too! Beautiful, strange, emotive, I think of vessels and wounds, of making and mending, of feeling one’s way. Closing up, but not down, holding and holding in. Your words speaking of looking after the self that feels small, not fully formed, vulnerable. You’re doing that in your very own way, it’s meaningful and mien-ful and as ever with your posts I feel touched and inspired. From such a simple and overlooked thing as orange peel, which we discard after having freed and consumed the flesh within, you weave your magic.
we never know ourselves when we are making progress. these orange peels are great, really touching!
Hej you got me, you!!!I carefully and accurately cleaned the last avocado-peel (two halfes..HA!)and now I watch their change day by day......The amazing beauty in the small things we already thought to have classified as refuse...:)) Thanks!
Former snacks, now stitchy-itchy little frankensteinlets. Umber cups and rustful rims: funny that oranges, these southland fruits, can remind so much of birchbark canoes, spruceroot-sewn.
You have a LOVELY blog! :)
from this kind of exploration great things can develop and emerge, and i feel sure they will.
I love these, you are so creative with the sewing...your pieces have a poetic quality.
Cool idea, dude! U must be a master orange picker/peeler since u got almost the whole peel off w/o a tear!
I think these are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!
mien, last time I came here and spent so long looking at all the new things that I hadn't seen last time, and then never got around to writing anything.I love these little vessels, maybe part of what draws me t othem, and to a lot of your work is the care that visibly goes into them, like they're being cared for, and I find it comforting. Also they feel quiet to me, and peaceful.
