Pins for the Core Fellows 2011

For the third year in a row, I made pins for Penland's core fellows for their annual exhibition. This year I quizzed them about their favorite colors, patterns/textures, and numbers. Then I used this information in whole or in part to create personalized shadowbox brooches filled with things they like and that remind me of them. Each piece also features a teardrop to symbolize sentiment and how important they are to me.

I worked on the pieces all week and assembled them on Friday. Around 2pm I only had four done, and with five left, I was terribly worried that I would not finish. In fact I was sick to my stomach! Somehow I did, though, and was able to present them to the group at their celebration dinner at 6pm.

Thanks for reading.
