I have just read Donnna Watson's ['Layers'] post on the Japanese 'Boro' patchwork - thanks Donna. This type of 'patchwork' really makes my heart sing and I feel inspired to post some vaguely patchwork related images from my recent China trip.
...jade burial ornament, circa 600BC
...antique silk garment sleeves,
...patchworked canvas truck tarp,
...dripping canvas protecting a water outlet,
...Jackson Li wearing a traditional potter's vest,
... mops made from old T shirts and track pants.
...demonstration of synthetic fabric burning.
Walls will be my next post, so feel free to skip that one - ie- my friends who give me a hard time about walls - you know who you are!!!
