To create the fabric for this piece, I first collected smooth stones from Halladay Brook next to my house. By placing the stones on cotton that I had painted with dye, the dye molecules migrated away from the covered areas leaving ghostly serendipitous circles.

Don’t ask me why, I think of it as some sort of magic… Anyone out there know the answer??

    the reason for the transition would be related to what type of dye you used, I would think. Different dyes respond to different mordants. Back in the day, took a class at CCA(C) on dye theory.
