  Winter White Nuno Felted Flared Coat  Donna Lark larkstudios511@gmail.com  donnalarkfelts.com  Size XS $1,500.00  Nuno Felting is achieved through the stacking & layering of merino wool fibers onto hand dyed silk, carefully varying their lengths & alignments in a fashion that allows for controlled shrinkage. The resulting felt maintains just the right amount of movement & drape for its function as good design & clothing.

  Reflections of Cowichan #1  Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry caryl@bryerpatch.com  wall quilt 30" x 30" $3,400.00  In the summer of 2013 we charted a boat and went cruising in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf islands. One of our favorite ports was Cowichan, BC, where the harbor was dominated by the headquarters of the Cowichan Wooden Boat Society. The building had railings which cast dramatic shadows in the water beneath. In the late evening, everything was black and white. By zooming in on the reflections I found dramatic images that looked like abstract expressionist paintings. The design for this quilt was inspired by one of my photographs.
