Trout Dreams in "Reflection" exhibit at Valley Artisans Market




This piece was inspired by my very active dream life. Around her neck hangs a felted pouch and in it is a small leather book which contains the dream interpretation for "three trout." The garment is rya weaving of dupioni silk, organza, yarn and batiked cotton. Her headpiece is felted wool. The trout are paperclay with spots of gilded gold.
"Trout Dreams" is currently on display in the juried exhibit "Reflection" at Valley Artisans Market in Cambridge, NY. The show runs through February 25th.
