in the studio with raissa, part 4

my final day in the studio with raissa was on saturday. we spent the morning working in my space and later spent the afternoon in the penland metals studio with lola. so fun! i made more samples - stitching on two white fabric collages i made last summer in my embroidery class. i also made a simple quilt with scraps that will be yet another surface to try something else on. (i am out of white fabric at the moment so i pulled together the few bits i had to make a larger workable canvas.) raissa tried a few more things and i think she ended up accomplishing most of what she set out to do during her time with me.

from the punched metal series

the near (and all too short) week with raissa around was really good. i loved having her in the studio with me. it was fun to work side by side. plus, we talked so much jewelry, exchanging information about galleries, production work, one of a kind, and on and on. (i really do love "shop talk.") at the end of the last day, we traded and i got these fantastic earrings. they measure about 1.25" long.
