Let’s stew.

So, Fire is the theme of this year. Have you thought about it yet? thought about the word? About stuff you could do? work with? people to collaborate with? desires? The reason for this post full of links is to give your brains a bit of a push or just to give you a pleasant time by seeing and realizing how artists used Fire as a theme or literary in their work. Let’s investigate and see where it brings us.

We are going to start with Paul Klee, a painter who made Fire in the evening in 1929 and Johannes Itten’s Tower of fire. completely different pieces and colours. Next in line is the stunning work Ring of fire by Teresita Fernandez. Take a look at the work done by the Fire arts Collective, it might give you some chills down your spine, either from fear or joy.:)  Maybe your brain will be triggered by the colours of the Anagama fired pottery by Dick Lehman  or the work by Peter Covacsy,  the shapes of colours in Hillary Kane’s work. And for those of you who like the more industrial, maybe these Fire pits gives you an idea to work on.

Last link, well for today anyway, do take a look at the work by the artists Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz, Monumental and impressive.

I am a felt/fiber artist and instructor. I love to share the joys of feltmaking with others, having taught within the U.S. and internationally. I specialize in fun, out-of-the ordinary felt hats sold under the name of Felt So Right through specialty retail, boutique and gallery shops throughout the United States.I live in Plainwell, Michigan, where I work from my home studio. I believe that we are all artists....That it is the soul deep need to create. I love and appreciate so many of the arts, but I have found my passion through feltmaking. I find such joy in the alchemy of turning a few ounces of wool into a thing of beauty, limited only by the imagination and I find that the unique sculptural and color possibilities always inspire creativity. I have studied feltmaking with renowned felt and fiber artists from around the world. Feltmaking has truly opened windows to the world for me and I am grateful for this most wonderful opportunity. www.feltsoright.com
