joanne kaar and angus macphee

dvd joanne sent me about making a replica angus garment
 fiberartist joanne kaar has made
her way as a fiberartist
doing some amazing work
she is twining, then looping a coarse but strong structure
i first saw her work when she was 
blogging about her work 
in journeys
which captured my attention, then my heart
she and gin petty were the two papermakers
that swept me away
and inspired me to consider
being public on the net
(and someone else really encouraged me...)
joanne's current project is 
working around the theme of angus macphee
from there you can search more about angus, 
and the puppet theater that is performing
the weaver of grass.
joanne recently asked me if scotland is on my way to australia
so we can finally meet and visit.
you see, she and i did a journal exchange
for a couple of years, and we would 
like to meet, in person.
and angus...he has captured my imagination, for he is
in some ways
like one of my students.
