I worked on this mail art envelope
and the central image came from a
furniture catalog from Spain on an
article about young design talent.
It made me think so much about
Native American Art of the
Pacific Northwest. Their masks
carved with bold, graphic design
and even bolder color.
On a trip to visit Seattle a few
years back, we saw quite a bit
of Native American Art
at the Seattle Museum
of Art and were enthralled.
Their were totems and house
posts twelve and fifteen feet
high, all intricately carved
in this same style.
My homage in mail art form.
Another spectacular stamped mail art envelopes
(with her own carved stamps, of course!), arrived
today from Lyle.
We are planning to keep up this mail swapping,
which is so much fun. Here is what came today…
An envelope with bird and pattern stamps. Some
glorious sheep on vintage paper, a hand, button and
tyvek material. I will have lots of uses for this.
