One of the inspirations for this project was the terracotta warriors
I was imagining how so many artisans probably spent years reinterpreting the same elements again and again. Each a little different than the last and yet the same.
After 26 years designing tiedyes for my job I feel a certain kinship although they probably had a far greater incentive to keep going than I , there is no emporor with the power of life and death in my world... just a mortgage and a bunch of other bills!

|the counted so far (30)|
So what are these little guys about?
that has many answers,
an exploration of Tribe, group similarities contrasting with individuality
the practice of working within boundaries,
a repetitive interpretation of the same elements: gold stone, red thread, green thread, gold bead, black bead, olive bead, horsehair, knotted cord, and pine twigs
a way of reestablishing my daily practice,
finding a voice again.
