Hot off the press, or needles in this case. Just finished this new addition to my Architectural Collection that I am busy preparing for the Artist of the month at the Alberta Craft Council in December http://www.albertacraft.ab.ca Thank you Alberta Craft Council for asking me to be part of this wonderful opportunity in December. I appreciate it so very much!!! There are various designs from my Architectural collection already available at the Alberta Craft Council and I am currently finishing some of the larger pieces this week. The larger pieces that will be available after December 1st will include some One of a Kind designs. There are only a few of the larger designs so pop in early to take a peek.
The Stone Tracery inspired scarf, my bulky X large version, is also available on my etsy store at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com and will be available in other colours soon. I am elated designing this collection and enjoying every moment. In the New Year I would like to begin working on an elaborate, large piece, perhaps one that is more suitable to hang on a wall. Though I do tend to love making pieces that work for both wearing and the art of it so it is more likely I will make it a wearable art piece. Each piece I design inspires me in some way to try and go further with the design. In this case, due to the very cold last week, I wanted to make a bulky, super warm version for those bitter days of winter and warm them up to a suitable temperature.
The Stone Tracery Bulky XLarge scarf is perfect for those cold days of winter adding a stylish and unique flair.
Be sure to pop by the Alberta Craft Council in December to see more of my Architectural Collection and other new designs perfect for giving at Christmas or any time of year. Stay warm and enjoy your day,
The Floral Stone Tracery Scarf is made with a stone wall essence on the base of the scarf in the colours of various stones. The inspiration for this set of scarves is the amazing stone tracery on Architecture of the past. The elaborate and fascinating artwork that was involved in designing and making the stone tracery is outstanding. For these smaller scarves, more of a cowl size, I have choosen to put a few stone tracey flowers to accent the design. I will be changing the stone tracery as I go along focusing on different types of stone tracery. Other colours will be available in the future.
This is likely my favourite collection to design to date. The ideas and inspiration continue to flow with some bigger and more elaborate pieces to come soon. I love Architecture of the past and present and will continue to add this to my future designs. Stay tuned for more of the Architectural Collection by Valerie Baber Designs.
