Fabrics were stitched to a fabric foundation and embroidered in the style of crazy patchwork with variegated gold and silver metallic thread. The warbler was printed with black textile paint using the Warbler rubber stamp from Penny Black's Brushstroke Series on white pima cotton. The plum blossom brocade fabric has a reflective satin-like finish due to the acetate content, however it's reflective nature is not captured by the scanner.

Inspirations and Influences. The plum blossom is one of the first signs of spring. This is a variation on the fifth piece in the series of fabric collages created using a copper/coffee colored brocade with both black & white plum blossoms. Each piece in the series includes the brocade fabric combined with a white or tan fabric with a garden motif printed in black textile paint.

Many of the textile collages I create are inspired by the Asian art displayed in Tokonoma alcoves. Tokonomas were the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, and reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.
While every effort is taken to reproduce colors as accurately as possible, monitor colors may vary.
