After my massive posting about sloths, I thought I would actually publish some progress work on here.  I recently created a sample I made using a flour resist technique on some old canvas cloth I inherited.  I have so much of it that I am thinking of turning it into up-cycled upholstery on some furniture that needs repairing.  My plan is to incorporate this cloth while utilizing hand weaving techniques similarly seen in Gunta Stolzl’s “African Chair” piece.  Also, this canvas cloth was once part of one of two couches I grew up on, built by my father.  Back when I was a child I grew up on furniture that was mostly constructed by him: my bed, the family couches, my desk, the wooden floors, and now recently he did a complete make-over on the roof.  It is inspiring to think how objects can continue to be re-invented.
