Alvin, TX USAWidth:
Synthetic and cotton fabric; crocheted grapes using rayon thread, silk fabric leaves.Artist's Statement:
I've had this rayon thread for a long time and it is
too thick to use in my sewing machine, however it was the perfect colors for
grapes. I crocheted circles of varying sizes for the grapes. To get the
right shape for the grape leaves, I picked one from the grapevine in my yard
and reduced it by several factors. The green silk fabric I had was perfect
for the leaves. Makes me think of wine country.
Carolyn Sower Dedication:
For my three co-workers who are dealing with parents at different stages of Alzheimer's, something I hope my children never have to deal with.
