The Art of Seeing

The Art of Seeing, originally uploaded by moonwild.

This piece is created using a metal tin that I darkened in the fire, old wire, school scissors and some odd pieces that decided they belonged together. The holey piece is backed by a page from a math book so that the numbers show through the holes.
The halo of painted wire circles the piece and is used to hang the work. Inside the round tin is a spark plug with the word “seeing” on it. The base is an antique metal hinge part. This might be a good piece to hang near your creation station to inspire ideas!! The size, including the wire, is 5 inches by 13 inches.

All that we see or seem Art Quilt

All that we see or seem is just a dream within a dream.

This is made with vintage scraps of handwork and fabric. Some of the pieces I dyed with rust. I quilted it to a hand dyed background. I added buttons and the cool tarnished old spoon on top.Printed the face and the quote onto fabric/ photo transfer.
