Hands and Hearts is part of my Tea Towel Cloth series, 23″ x 36.5″.  

Each work is made from 100% flour sack cotton.  The cloth
has been hand dyed, hand painted, sun painted, dye set and washed.  Each
image springs from an idea.  During the process the dyes tend to spread or
travel on the cloth.  This may result in a “fuzzy” appearance,
especially when photographing.   The way the cloths are painted is
wet dye into wet dye.  There is a certain amount of control during the
painting of an image.  During the drying process magic takes over and the
results are not always predictable.  The plants are bits and pieces from
my gardens, which are mostly wildflowers and wild takeovers.  The
crispness of the edges of the floral elements juxtapose the looseness of the
painting medium, creating opportunities for light and shadow in amongst the
flowers, leaves and vines.  

The edges of the cloths are not always “straight” after
the dying process.  I have tried to portray these raw edges in the photos
but sometimes it is necessary to crop parts of the edges.  I have tried to
show the edges when possible.

I have been told that these cloth images are more like
wall-hangings than tea towels.  Some are quite large for the average
“tea towel”.  It is up to the eye of the beholder.

Machine wash cold with like colors, hang dry or tumble dry low. 
As with any tea towel, the image will fade over time and with multiple
washings.  I hope you love them for a long time.

All cloth works may be shipped.  Please contact me, as shipping
fees are additional expenses:
