Potter Gina Skillings Writes...

"These two wall pieces and my funky tea jar were accepted into "contempo, pushing the limits on art", to be held January 6th to February 12th at the Lighthouse ArtCentre in Tequesta, Florida.

"On this (left) piece the fiber portion is pieced and quilted, featuring seeds, petals and Angelina fibers. Stoneware clay box frame is textured and highlighted with iron oxide.

"More quilting with nature's contribution of rose petals and seeds, this piece (right) is textured with the use of solvron as described here.

Bits of pine needles are included in this fiber study, stitched to a funky tea jar. If you're in the area check out the show. If you can attend January 6th enjoy the ArtsyBras, fundraiser auction for cancer. I had intended to get a bra made this year but time escaped me."--Gina Skillings
