Huib Petersen is known for his creative translation of nature’s themes, wonders and little inhabitants through beadwork. His necklaces tell little stories about how nature’s elements come together and play.

What a wonderful opportunity to expore our craft with the artist in person — share special insights, get that master-level perception, understand her craft and artistic strategy!

Huib Petersen Workshops Scheduled

Posted by learntobead on March 31, 2009

Huib Petersen – Bead Weaving Artist

Huib Petersen visited the shop yesterday, and we had a very nice visit.  He brought with him many of his wonderful pieces.

He has one series of work that is very nature-inspired.   I love the way he can manipulate his peyote stitch work to get the natural curves and twirls in the butterfly wings.    And his use of color placement is superb.    With these techniques, he gets very realistic-looking pieces, with a strong sense of dimensionality, with beauty and wearability.    Unfortunately, computer images can’t show the detail and the dimensionality.

Another series of pieces he’s begun working on involves tubular right angle weave in cubic forms.    In one piece, he layered one tubular right angle rope/chain (line of open square donuts done as a continuous rope) over another rope/chain.     In appearance, it looked like he had used basket-weaving techniques to intertwine the rope/chains, but in reality, it was just how they were layed one on top of the other.

BEAD STUDY

TOPIC: Dimensional Shapes in Beadwork

We will be using Diane Fitzgerald's new book on dimensional shapes as a study guide. The book is entitled "Shaped Beadwork: Dimensional Jewelry with Peyote Stitch". We have copies for sale in the shop.

We will probably stick with this topic for the next 12 months.

We will organize the studies into 5 units:

(1) Making basic polygons

(2) Making donut polygons

(3) 3-Dimensional Shapes

(4) "Shape" as a design element

"Dimensionality" as a design element

(5) Other Geometrics from other artists, like Julia Pretl, Jean Powers, Judith Walker, Laura McCabe
