Featuring Bulky Knits

These are some of the fun shots from our Wool Farm Fashion – Shoot #2 (to see session #1 click here.)This time we were doing product shots, which isn’t as fun for me as working with farmers/models, but it is still pretty fun. It is much harder than you would think to make everything look perfect but natural and beautiful at the same time. But I think we are off to a good start.

Marlie was inspired by the rows farmers make in their agricultural fields near her home in West Marin for this sweater.

Not only is Marlie a fiber artist, but she is also a fantastic ceramicist. So it is really cool that she has found a way to combine her two arts into one, like in the sweater above.

And finally Cassie, the love-monster, helps us out by doing what she does best. Although, you can’t tell from the photo, Cassie is completely stressed out at this moment. I saw her sleeping there and decided it would be a good photo… and of course as soon as we starting moving unwanted background objects out of the way, she decided she should move too… so we had to convince her that staying still was a better idea. In the end, I think she understood us when we promised her lots of diet breaking treats as soon as it was all over.

To find more of Marlie’s handwovens and ceramic creations go to her store in Pt Reyes Station… Blackmountain Weavers.

  2. Hi Paige: Just looked at take 2. They are wonderful!. There are several that would work I am convinced. I think the ones of Mimi in the barn and on the fields, some of the close-ups and I quite like the ones indoors with the dog but also in front of the fire place. Even the blue one looks good.

    Paige you are a wondermaker. You make everything look fantastic!!!

    How do you do it? I am so pleased, It is thanks to YOUR craftsmanship and artistry that this may work. Thank you so very much.

  3. This catalog is going to be gorgeous. I don’t have anything original to say…I feel like I keep saying how great your pics look. They are. Andy and I are thoroughly impressed. Are you for hire to come to Montana and snap a few shots of a bug named Margot? 🙂
