Les Escargots!

Today my mind is on snails – not so much the evil munchers who seek to destroy my lovely flowers- more the slow, peaceful, cool-looking dudes of fairytales and picture books. I’ve been working on snail drawings for a silkscreen series and now I see them everywhere, like this great shadow:

And at the ROM in the maya show, my fave piece was totally this chocolate bowl (you blow in the chimney to froth it up- genius!):

And then of course my dear friends and artistic superstars, iwona gontarska and kristin ledgett (who also happen to be my partners in knitting!) made these fantastic knitted snails for our gorgeous window at the knit cafe this month:

It’s a motif you can’t go wrong with– vive les escargots!!! More to come, for sure.
