I Get A Good Feeling /540

I Get A Good Feeling /540

Ocean... Flow Vibes. I made this when I found a new song by Pretty Lights called Finally Moving, which I listened to over and over and over for a month while working on this mobile and a fashion collection of 15 for a show. Most of the song words are "I Get A Good Feeling". It was my theme song for the fashion show.

Hand-painted silk covering foam core, with quilting and stitching added, brass swivels and rods, along with some puka shells. My sister used to collect them and make jewelry back in the '70s when she lived in Hawaii.

Lava Yin Yang /538

Lava Yin Yang /538

Hot, fountaining, lava spouted and spit for 3 months recently 20 miles from home. A river of the liquid flowing to the sea. Lots of earth rattles and rolls. Makes me think of what's really important in my life. Family, passion for living, peace with myself and others. This mobile came from those thoughts and a couple of my reasons for being, as quoted on the mobile.

And it was also made with intention of the theme, It's All Relative, for a New York juried fiber show where it was shown.

She Breathes /542

She Breathes /542

The island of Hawaii is home to 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones. There are as many different climate zones on the island of Hawaii as exist along the entire coast stretching from Alaska to Costa Rica.
This mobile is for our tallest mountain, Mauna Kea. In Hawaiian mythology, Mauna Kea is home to the snow goddess Poli‘ahu. In ancient times, the summit was considered the realm of the gods and was kapu (forbidden) to all except the highest chiefs and priests. Now, astronomy has chosen to use it for obtaining universal knowledge, like no other place on our earth.

Renewal of Ocean and Land / 537

Renewal of Ocean and Land / 537

For over 3 months about 20 miles from my home, lava was spouting from many ground fissures and ran a river to the ocean! Many people lost their homes and farms and livelihoods. The island no longer is the same in many ways, new coastline, favorite beach parks and places gone. There has been an algae bloom in the waters, the first sign of life. Scientists say that the chemistry of the lava interacts with the ocean to provide a nourishment, a fertilizer if you will, and that promoted the growth of plants. Wow!

Mobile is made of hand-painted silk, using wax for the resist lines. Pieces are quilted and stitched. Very light as covering foam core. Brass rods and swivels used.

533 Bamboo & Fern Panels

533 Bamboo & Fern Panels

Vibrancy for any space and 2-sided to give a look like no other. Bamboo on one side, fern and fiddleheads on the other. The supporting top and bottoms panels were once a scarf I like so much, I framed. It reminded me of the Ents in the Hobbit book. I'm just a happy tree hugger.

Ents are a race of beings in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world (with the Hobbits) of Middle-earth who closely resemble trees. They are similar to the talking trees in folklore around the world. Their name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for giant. The Ents appear in The Lord of the Rings as ancient shepherds of the forest and allies of the free peoples of Middle-earth during the War of the Ring. The Ent who figures most prominently in the book is Treebeard, who claims to be the oldest creature in Middle-earth.
