This approximately 41" x 56" silk scarf/wrap in translucent, saturated indigos, aqua blues, and cream abstracts a powerful waterfall in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge. Strong, distinctive, and versatile, it can be worn in a variety of ways.
Named Blue Watcher for the face that appears in the cascade when the image is abstracted, this is one of thousands of waterfall images that Deborah has captured over the last five years at all times of years and in many different weather and light conditions.
She processes them in different ways to discover the deeper energetic patterns in the interaction of the water, gravity, weather, and the earth. She began doing this simply as a creative and technical experiment, and from there her original investigation became an ongoing artistic practice. Only a few images are tagged for print editions and/or silk scarves and wraps.
Blue Watcher has a faint abstract first edition DBD logo to the left of the waterfall base as seen in the second, third (top right), and in the final (fine art) images.
12 MM CREPE DE CHINE: translucent with beautiful drape, depth, very slight pebbly texture, and subtle shine. Great year round.
DEEP INDIGO: dark to medium indigo blue, light aqua blue, cream, with subtle traces of lavender
All DBD silk scarves and wraps are individually artisan printed on a photographic printer and hand-hemmed in the USA. Creatively conceived and executed in the mists of Western Oregon and produced in the California wildfire zone, they bear not only beauty and versatility but also a message of regeneration. Each one is unique and slight individual variations in color and printing are normal.
Hand wash or spot clean only with gentle soap (we like S.D.H Fine Fabric Wash). These pieces also appreciate having a couple of tablespoons of sea salt added to the rinse water. Iron or steam as desired. Please do not rub fibers when wet, because (like people) in this condition they tend to be vulnerable.
AVAILABILITY AND SHIPPING
Options in stock are shipped immediately. Out-of-stock/pre-order items can be expected between 2.5-4 weeks, depending on the details, and earlier if possible. That does occasionally happen.
Each scarf comes in a black photographic proof box to protect it from dust and light. The box also contains a small, printed paper replica of the piece with Deborah's signature, date, and edition number on the back.
