Fall has taken hold here in North Carolina. The last of my rust dyeing fabric bundles have been unearthed. In the spring I plan on adding plant material to the bundles to explore eco-prints in addition to the rust.
Here are a few images of the process. I have this wonderful collection of rusted objects that I have either found or people have given me (rusted nails, wire, railroad ties, paperclips, etc.). You would be surprised at what people will bring you once you mention you like rusty objects.
In progress... Structures
Here is part of a piece that I am working on to submit for a show. This will merge two bodies of work - Archeological Remnants and an another series that is in development entitled "Structures."
