feathering a heart

"i would rather have eyes that cannot see; 
ears that cannot hear;
lips that cannot speak,
than a heart that cannot love"
-robert tizon

still feathering my heart. digging through scraps and salvage, looking for paisley feathers. have a few more to add and then will probably start tacking them down tonight. then dive into the thread nest to find some appropriate strands.

this piece speaks deeply to my own heart. there is an element of the phoenix inherent here. while broken too many times, it rises to soar, and love, again. and again. the cloth is still whispering. sometimes too quiet to hear clearly unless i hold my breath and concentrate fully. while i may not be clear as to where it will be going, i am quite certain it will unfold as it needs to...



  1. it's a shame the camera does this piece the disservice of not showing the many, many components that have gone into the creation of these wings! there are layers upon layers...culled from several vintage silk shirts, dresses and ties.

    ah well...it has been a delight to work upon so far in any case!

  2. Well despite what you say about the photo, it is a truly stunning piece!!

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, it's good to know blogger is working on the problem and I have to say, things appear to becoming better...
