living lace

Posted: May 16, 2015 by Mo Crow in It's Crow Time, Lace

zig-zag  Zig-Zag aka Acacia merinthophora
this lichen enjoyed the rain last night
a new home for the orchids made with the lichen covered sticks from the flower markets
and the Tillandsia in the snail shell
Acacia merinthopora stitched into the last page of the Out of the Blue Book
reverse of stitched Acacia above then sketched in 5H graphite
love how the sharp graphite marks the gessoed surface
the Out of the Blue book is full now
You can see more pages here, here and here

  1. I love the lace and the lichen . . . it’s growing on the capping rail on my fence and I know for the sake of the fence I should remove it but somehow . . . it’s a triumph of aesthetics over pragmatism.

      the lichen sticks are so much happier outside enjoying the rain and air, looking forward to seeing if the bits I stitched into the flax cord grow!

    Your lacy plant life segues so beautifully into your book pages. That book is wonderful. I would like to hold it in my hands.

  5. Liz says:

    Yay! I was wondering when we would see the Blue Book again.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Liz))) I just looked through the amazing lichen & onion dyed 60 count hand weaving & vintage cloths that you sent back at xmas, I have another week off before the crow book comes back from the editing, this is the time to do something with them with all the lichen inspiration!

    • Mo Crow says:

      Books are my life long passion, the space between the covers provides a quiet place of retreat, a private world to explore, a gallery I can hold in my hands and carry with me, full of wonder, fresh perspectives & inspiration.
