plus six....with more on the way
Before I start tonight, I have some business to take care of. I've been doing some more thinking about how this Kickstarter campaign is going to work: I will document all of the pieces online once the show is installed. Each piece will have its own name and placement code in the big picture of this installation. When it's time for my Kickstarter funders to choose which piece(s) they want, I will ask you for your top choice(s) with two backup choices. Then I will move down the list from the first supporter on down, fulfilling the earliest bidders from the top pledge tier first, and move down through the levels accordingly. There will be over 700 finished pieces in this installation, so there's a pretty good chance that everyone will get what they want. But if you're lurking in the shadows, you might think about getting your name on that wait list soon!
Okay. Enough business talk. It's time to unveil the weekend's offerings:
a very lovely design Morris did that you can see by clicking here. This piece is about three inches wide.
J.H. Dearle for Morris & Company. Dearle worked for the business nearly all of his life, coming as a teen and eventually being appointed art director of the firm upon Morris' death in 1896. He was multi-talented, creating beautiful designs for designs for tapestries, embroidery, wallpapers, woven and printed textiles, stained glass, and carpets
As a reminder, every one of the pieces you've seen today are part of the 24 panel repeats that dominate this installation. I have two more that are pretty close to being done that I'll post in the next few days. Goodnight!
