Fall is here! We love Autumn! Both Kaye and Sandi love the crisp mornings, cool evenings, and the colour, colour, colour that begins with Autumn. Here in the Bay Area we truly have a longer Autumn than Winter, so we take great pleasure in watching as the season progresses. Our neighborhood, while very urban, has lots and lots of beautiful foliage that really takes on full colour as the chlorophyll green of Spring and Summer recede.
In response to the season we both have seasonal colours in mind on the looms. Kaye has just finished up 5 beautiful cowls in hot pink with varying wefts in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month. You can find these cowls listed exclusively on our Etsy store: stonewaterarts.etsy.com There are five available: 2 with white, 2 with brown, and one with burgundy weft. They will be listed at $60 each, $15 of which will be donated to the Women's Cancer Resource Center located in Oakland, CA.
Sandi has a beautiful piece on her big loom called Falling Rain. This shawl combines her handspun merino/silk with a lovely blue weft, reminiscent of rain falling heavily across a mountain range. She was inspired to create this piece after our trip to Black Sheep Gathering this past June. Driving through the Cascade mountain range reminded her of the mountains of her childhood.
Welcome to Stonewater Arts! We hope you will enjoy our offerings here at Stonewater Arts! We feel called to create beautiful items for you to enjoy, pieces of art that you can wear and display. All of our work is meant to be used; we feel strongly that art is an ever changing verb describing both the world around us as well as the world we wish to see.
