LACED

Mixed Media on Reclaimed Wood

Signed and Titled on the Back

“Out of the way! We are in the throes of an exceptional emergency! This is no occasion for sport- there is lace at stake!” (Ms. Pole)”” – Elizabeth Gaskell, Cranford

The Laced Series is based on the marriage of two simple and beautiful materials: reclaimed wood and antique lace.

 

Each piece in my Laced Series is created using authentic antique lace that I seek out and collect wherever I am in the world. Once I’ve laid the pattern onto the reclaimed wood canvas, I sand, glaze, and burnish the image using traditional hand finishing techniques. I love the way the delicacy of the lace plays off the rusticity of the reclaimed wood, and the honest, quiet collaborations that result.
