Grandma’s Linens Redux

Sometimes it takes a fresh view of something to appreciate it. Consider Grandma’s crocheted and tatted laces for example. Ceramic A\artist Dana Morton of Earthborne Art in Sonora California uses them in a unique way.

“It all started when I needed favors for our wedding,” said Morton. “I went through a box of old linens that my grandmothers had made, and created little dishes by taking impressions of them.”

“They were a huge hit!”

“I now scour flea markets, yard sales…in search of old textiles,” said Morton. “I like the idea of preserving them in clay while breathing new life into an old art form.”

Me too.

You can buy Dana’s ceramics at her Earthborne Art Etsy shop.
