Avatar – Narrow Wares Cornucopia

December 19th, 2009 at 13:14 pm » Comments (2)

My “chosen” must have Christmas gift?

AVATAR …on opening day!


And I was NOT disappointed!!

So, a HUGE Thank You TheHenry

and of course to James Cameron

Far too often it seems the trailers were the best part of the movie. Avatar’s trailers are great but it is probably the best nearly three hours I have ever spent watching a movie.

It is usually a pretty sure thing that I will agree with the Movie Reviews of Gene Shalit. That has stood the test of time since his early days as a NY critic. But it may just be possible this is the first time ever, I completely agree with the New York Times on anything!

Now, it is ALSO going to be necessary to “see it again” because I want to be able to see all the Narrow Wares used as adornments by the Na’Vi – as we left the theater, my comment was – can’t wait to see the Jewelry and Halloween Costumes that come out of this movie.

Avatar is NOT a movie for TV or eve home theaters unless you can afford IMAX in your Living room. It is this new standard that may be what really saves the movies. Excellence and Innovation.

I am reasonably sure it is certainly going to boost sales of hemp YARNandTHREAD for use beading, crochet, macrama, and what looked like a fair amount of tablet weaving.
Na'Vi  Warriors

I am just glad that now my “Molly Sweater” is approaching completion of the project (or will be in time for summer wearing) A whole new range of projects and most small enough for the Pocket is emerging. Molly Sleeve View

If you can see it in 3D/IMAX – you will not regret the extra few dollars.

Once again, thank you James Cameron – especially for the NTI and now the Na’Vi.

Peace of the Season


Ayn Rand and Ukrainian Talent

September 17th, 2009 at 10:52 am » Comments (2)

Nothing (except possibly copyright) can stir a more lively discussion in a fiber art oriented group that defining art vs craft.

Admittedly much of my own viewpoint has likely been formed with my obsession with all the writings of Ayn Rand – even if my 6th grade teacher said there was no way I could “understand” what I was reading.

Frankly in view of what is going on in our country of late, I have been thinking that not only do I need to, like our Congressional Representative Roscoe Bartlett, need to be giving away copies of the US Consititution, The Federalist Papers, but as importantlyAyn Rand’s novels Anthem ” and “We The Living“.

Aside from the obvious, what Ayn Rand has had to say about Artistic creation and Art continue to inspire me and maybe are really about as close as I will EVER come to understanding the meaning of life.

So what does all this have to do with “Ukraines Got Talent”?

A few days ago, TheHenry sent me a link about the 2009 winner of UGT,

If you have about 15 minutes, and quite possibly even those *not* of Ukrainian heritage will need to be armed with tissues, you will need about 10 minutes to watch Sand Art Animation. I doubt anyone with a soul will find it a waste of time even if you don’t understand the language.


(HBIH – I have not forgotten)

Glass Spinning Wheel

November 12th, 2007 at 18:27 pm » Comments (0)

Today was one of those days (well actually it is one of those weeks) where I “allow” myself to wander both studio and web strictly in search of things to awe and entertain me – reading to catch up on, whatever I please.

You may remember months ago, the note about making lemonaide
and of course

Lemon Spinning Wheel

That was for fun – but this, oh my!

As an admitted sufferer from the Magpie factor (attraction to shiny things), Glass working is also one of my secret (well until now) passions – and we already know I save spinning “just for me” – no business attached.

Andy Paiko’s definitely qualifies for a “Takes My Breath Away”

Andy Paiko’s Glass Spinning Wheel

And to have him combine two of my passions in one sculpture, well let’s just say the rest of the next hour or so was lost in exploring and contemplating the wonders of this glass artisan.

Do visit AndyPaikoGlass – this is only one of the great pix of this functioning sculpture and there is just so much more wonderful stuff – but remember to breath

Crochet Street Art – Tree Cozy by Carol Hummel

July 21st, 2007 at 11:08 am » Comments (6)

After a week of far too much “serious” thought, it is fun to share some silly stuff.


Many Thanks to Judy from Crochet Partners for sending me this this link with the photo above and some of the story that has the Story of Carol Hummel’s Tree Cozy.

Naturally I could not type “tree cozy” in to google fast enough to find more and was rewarded with this rather eclectric blog with a ton more pictures

Also found Carol Hummel’s personal domain, it is worth the time to ‘sit through” the slide show.

P.S. For more “fiber related” street art, you will want to spend some time visiting Knitta
