The Other 10%
The piece I’m working on now is composed of what I’m calling soft tessera (it’s not accurate because tessera are hard pieces) because I’m creating a mosaic with the hundreds of colored rock shaped felt pieces I created over a number of weeks. I then cut and folded the edges of a piece of wire screen to form a left-handed check mark which measures 66 inches on the long side and 41 inches on the short side. I’ve tied waxed linen around each creating a sort of abstract line language.
The waxed linen is also used to attached the individual pieces to the screen. It’s a slow process and the screen has been very hard on my hands and arms.
