Pinot for Shaun’s tallit
Shaun’s tallit is nearly done. Shaun is one of those women who has an intense relationship with fabric. One of the fabrics she showed me while we were working out what her tallit was to look like was a batiked silk scarf with loosely painted pomegranates
It gives the wearer of the tallit something pretty to focus on if they loose focus on prayer. Shaun is someone who gets a bit of whimsy. So I played with each pomegranate, playing with different techniques. Among the techniques I used were embroidering with my sewing machine, hand embroidery, beading and couching ribbon. I couched the metallic borders with a zig- zag stich on my machine. I like how the metallic borders look like they were doodled by hand.
