Visiting Artist at UAB

I am very excited about the upcoming trip to Birmingham in March!

Twined Binding

Here is my Twined Binding effort. It was quite a process oriented book full of peril at every corner...Actually it wasn't that bad...just required a new thought pattern. The instructions can be found in Bonefolder and are quite good. I would make the following suggestion... I preferred longer lengths of thread to work with in the twining/binding process. There is a really beautiful Twined Binding at My Handmade can follow the link on my is a wonderful blog. Cheers!

ps: For some reason I photographed this book upside down.

Books For Valentines Day

Here is a Book that I am producing in a limited edition....just in time for Valentines Day...although not too Valentinesy. They will be available at Ashland Gallery in Midtown Mobile, Monday - Friday 10:00am-5:30pm and at The Chesser Studio Project, Friday February 13 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm for LODA Artwalk. The cover image is based on an older collage which sold a year or so ago...this detail was used on the poster for a show...and hangs on the wall above my bench...the cover design was just staring me in the face. Enjoy!
