- Newcomb College revisited

Retrospective (7/18/2016)

Patch #189 Newcomb Tulip


From:



Original Post

I was tickled when the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane announced a Newcomb coloring book ...


It arrived at the end of June, but sadly it wasn't quite what I had hoped for. So I went back to the larger tome that we got in May and started paging through, trying to find the perfect piece to work.

What I found instead was a sense of what I most enjoy about Newcomb pottery. Strong vertical elements ...


organic forms in soft blues and greens ...


many accented with a curry gold ...


So I made a tiny sampler patch to tuck into my post for June 30th ...


A more considered take is yet to come.

Susan and Mo -- Thank you both ... it was enough to stitch just for the sake of itself
