Madonna and Child Roundels






Ciao gentle readers..
I am away with family as I write this post..
making it all the more poignant..



My 2019 holiday collection 
was inspired
 by the 
Della Robbia Roundels, 
they are Khadi paper shrines 
celebrating the art of Mothering and childhood. 
Mothering is often glued together with scraps and shreds that hold relationships in place, 
creating something from nothing.
 These shrines hide unseen stitches and feature antique etchings, prints, hand dyed fabric and gilded lace,
 that embellish the age old relationship
 of Mother and child.









I thought I would post a few details







from my Roundels







which are mixed media on handmade Khadi paper rounds..






If you are interested in seeing the rounds
just visit the galleria site..

I had to look. These roundels are incredible. You have that magic touch, Cat.

Nice work! I find using the round format makes all work look Renaissance - ah! The mention of Della Robbia work sent me back to the days when I was under contract with re-branding the Renaissance Faires. Back in the day when they were highly popular: circa '90s? Now Burning Man and other more nihilistic trends are running their course. But no less fun! Good work, woman!!!! ox
