Dubai 2012: Here are a few photos of our artwork, that will be showcased at the ARTE souq this coming Friday. Some of the artwork will also be on display at the Kambaa Art Cafe, Dubai Address Marina. I have to thank the art therapy sessions that I have had, that have enabled me to get back to serious artwork, now ready for exhibition and to present as gifts.
The other news is that Janys De blog will soon be merged with our partner website the Cultural Arts Travelogue, which is being rebranded as we ‘speak.’ More on this over the next few months.
Woven Bib Necklaces
We wanted to try something different from wire crochet, so we tried this weaving technique taught by the Korean based weaver at Dubai Design Days. Love the new material we have discovered, which is Emirati Talli. So we will have some of these on display at ARTE. We also have wire crochet jewelry for sale at the Sesshin Spa, just opposite the First Gulf Bank metro station (Gold and Diamond Park).
Raggedy Pots ‘n Bowls
Finally, I knew what I wanted to do with all the old fabric that I have been collecting over the years. As I cannot sew, I decided to go down the crochet way. So that’s what has been done with the rolls of fabric that I tore into massive threads and crocheted with a huge sized crochet needle. These were fortified with wire, otherwise they wouldn’t hold the shape. Oh, how I love spontaneous work. The finishing touches were with embroidery thread and the thinnest crochet needle on the planet. Holds spare change, even a watch. No liquids though!
