Coffee Filters!

After college I worked with lots of coffee filters.  Yes, coffee filters.  It was when I was working full time at a bar and a lot of my inspiration came from materials I was in contact with.  We used HUGE coffee pots and filters.  I grabbed one once and thought, these would make a cool dress.  Which, they did!  I also found that burning the filters created great, organic patterns.  I incorporated them into my paintings for a while – and really enjoyed the technique.

I’m currently revisiting this technique and having a great time with it!  Let me know what you think, I’d love the feedback.
