What is Ice Dyeing? Ice-dyeing reminds me of Christmas. It's a three-day-long process of multiple baths for cloth preparation, the carrying of dyes through the threads by melting ice, and locking color into natural fabrics. I may actually repeat this process multiple times to achieve the desired results. But the finished product is akin to opening a long-awaited package on Christmas morning, uncovering the surprise, witnessing the magic. No two pieces are ever the same; there is no way to duplicate them. As the ice melts, it carries the dyes in a unique pattern that can be influenced but not controlled, so each piece is guaranteed to be unique. The results are yummy abstracts much like watercolors that can be worn on the body as blouses, skirts, scarves, and shawls, or used as table runners, wall hangings and more.
