I finally caught up with Lulu Fitcher in her West Peterborough NH Studio and enjoyed an hour or so browsing through her pots, buttons and other neat ceramics.
She had a large jar of broken pot bits and here is what I came home with. Can you see these backed with gold lame and freeform beading around them?
Modern archaeological artifacts?
I first saw Lulu's ceramics at the LNHC Fair several years ago and have wanted her to do some small pieces for bead embroidery ever since that time. Turns out all I had to do was root in her artifact jar.
This is what happens when one of her unglazed porcelain fragments meets a bead crochet rope.
