Recently I took a break from weaving baskets to complete an entry for the Carroll County Arts Council’s Hubba Hubba Hub Cap exhibit. Weaving on a hubcap was a fun change from weaving vessels with reed. I first wove narrow black tubing, brown ribbon and gold cord around the outer cutout slits of a hubcap. Using wire and beads, I twisted and wove random freeform sections attached to the hubcap base to complete the sculpture.
For a second hubcap entry I made a mosaic mandella design of glass pebbles, beads and broken mirrors.
The artist reception is Thursday, June 14 from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Carroll County Arts Council on Main Street in Westminster. The show runs through August 14. Hope you can come check out all the entries.
