moon ladders made with boar bristles and linen thread for the River of Moons
a little escapism
making sense of the flow
with a different perspective
my favourite so far
all 13 moons are basted down now ready to go with the flow between now and August
with gratitude to Glennis Shibori Girl, Ulrike Bogdan and Jude Hill

    Well yes, ladders of course.. reaching skyward…all the better to see the Blue Mountains from every possible view.

      (((Marti))) the dream of the Blue Mountains still shimmers elusively like a mirage on the far horizon… we’ll be pleasantly surprised when the stars align x fingers by the end of this year but am not holding my breath!

    a little escapism……………yes please Mo, fly me to the moon……………..

    I love how the ladders bring in an element of story. And there’s an invitation there, in the symbol.

  4. jude says:

    Lots of thoughts about perspective these days.
    Beautiful details.

  5. Nancy says:

    My favorite so far too!

    Mo your work is truly inspirational and beautiful.

    The ladders add so much to the story telling Mo – how fascinating. They are like Margaret Atwood’s favourite word ” ‘and’ – it seems so hopeful”. I like that they offer us a way to move through it differently – not just horizontally and sequentially; but up and down and in and out . They are so perfect and for me, have really brought the work to life in a new and fabulous way!

    I love how you bring your dreams out into the light…..Have to agree..this is my favourite too…so far that is.

    MC – wow – what a piece of work and what attention to detail. The ladders do add another element – I like the idea of being able to walk to the moon on a ladder. B

    Oh, Mo…climbing them in my mind…

  11. Liz A says:

    I tried once to take a picture of a ladder and the moon and thereby came to a truer appreciation of your artistry … and as I read this, Moonshadow was the song that played in my mind

    Flow On!……………………Mo and Moons….Flow On!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Grace))) the slow steadying comfort of stitch helps keep a glimmer of hope alive for our beautiful broken world but sometimes I wonder if it’s just keeping my hands busy…

    A ladder…thinking about that.

  14. emilysuzanna says:

    I think of the song Fly me to the Moon, but I love the thought of a ladder…it touches my heart. Thank you.

    Wish I could climb this ladder. Leaving all the mess behind. Thank you for the idea. Makes me dream. Can feel the touch. Doris

  16. Acey says:

    not sure how I missed this one. Is a little stunning to realize everything is basted into place.

  17. Saskia van Herwaarden says:

    I’m moonstruck with delight Mo;-)

  18. Peggy McG says:

    Mo..such stunning art..in design elements and concept! To know the moon shines above us all pulling us into its magic..

    Let the flow continue!

    Fabulous idea to connect rivers, ladders, moons. I visited your blog today and am so glad that you are still doing what you do. xoxo

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Judy))) this one is holding so much, along with so many memories of my best friend Julie who passed away last August, it’s fulfilling the need for escape as the dream of retiring and moving to the mountains is best just tucked away carefully for now, then there is the ongoing rocking back and forth making sense of the piece as a whole, integrating the moons into the river of time…
