TEXTILE SCULPTURE, ART NOVEL FOR THE ROAD


Sculptural work in progress,  Lori LaBerge  2016

This will be the third out of four sculptural works to be shown July-August and will deal with a water theme.  The rug hooked portion above will be the base.  I added yarn and am just beginning to fray it around the edges.  The metal screws will hold the felted section.


Industrial felt was cut and manipulated with metal into a teardrop shape.


The felt was temporarily placed to get a feel for the final outcome.  Two longer metal rods will be placed through the felt later on.  Yarns and threads will be stitched on the inside and outside of the felt.

On the reading front I ordered a book of art fiction to read while on the road.


I can't wait to get started on this one.  It is about a woman who forges a painting, later becomes a curator and finds out her forgery and the original work are on their way to an exhibit she is curating.  The plot thickens!
