… what do you see? Well when you look up inside Trinity Church in the City of Boston, in the nave, you see a beautiful painted ceiling with abstract patterns and artistically rendered script. I shared a fuzzy photograph with Donna McNett of DonaScarves who then worked her magic to design a stunning menswear collection that includes a necktie, bow tie and pocket square. Available exclusively at Trinity Church. Shipping is available. Send inquiries to artandarchitecture@trinitychurchboston.org. Or leave me a note and I’ll pass your message along. 🙂

The online shop Redbubble promotes this item as a wall tapestry but I have to admit I use it as a sheer window drape as well. The photo is of a Somerville sunset. Your choice how to drape or hang this fluid digital print. Available here  https://rdbl.co/2KarrDm

LaFargeScarfPromotion

Not only will there be a new audio tour available at Trinity Church coming soon, but during the next two weeks, a new scarf will be available inspired by the magnificent mural, Christ Woman at the Well, by John La Farge. Recently cleaned and restored with improved lighting, it is even easier now to understand the impact that this colorful mural, as well as the other interior decorations, had on society when the Copley Square building (the third building for the parish) was consecrated in 1877.

While best remembered today by many people for his later grand achievements in stained glass, John La Farge was first and foremost a painter of light and color. It is indeed an honor to be surrounded by his work and to be inspired by his creativity.

silk chiffon scarf and pouch

In the post light shining through, I pondered what to do with a photo of sunlight shining brightly through the dramatic decorative glass on the doors leading into the sanctuary at Trinity Church. Well, with the aid of a noreaster that left me housebound, inspiration did strike. I hope people like the results. These two items, and other merchandise featuring this original design, can be found at the shop at Trinity Church starting next week.

I was cleaning up and found a bracelet I made many years ago. A fun, colorful find on a rather gray day as we await the snow in New England. Be safe. Have fun! 🙂

Scarf1

Silk Cashmere Scarf modeled by Adina Richardson Lundquist. Photography by Rodrigo Larios.

You know me … the journey began with sunlight. It shone on the gold stenciled wall of Trinity Church in the City of Boston. The image had been digitally printed on silk before, and wonderfully so, but this time we were looking for something to be woven to enhance consistency in color and durability over time.  So, through good word of mouth, we chanced upon talented fashion designer Donna McNett, noted for her love of and background in architecture. She worked with the image, teasing out certain colors and characteristics, to produce an object of great beauty. The resulting silk cashmere scarf is warm in winter and cool in summer, and is large enough to be worn as a shawl or even a sarong.

It was a treat to learn from Donna as she shared her creative process along the way.  I am thankful for the different levels of collaboration that is possible in this day and age. Many thanks to Donna of DonaScarves for producing something exceptional in aesthetics, function and quality. Thanks to Adina Richardson Lundquist for braving the cold to model the scarf (and its matching cuff bracelet) and to photographer Rodrigo Larios for sharing his skills.

Scarf4

The scarf, retailing at $94.95, is available exclusively at the shop at Trinity Church. Its current winter hours (assuming no Noreasters!) are Wednesday – Saturday 11:00 am – 4:30 pm, and Sunday 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Quantities are limited. Inquiries about availability and shipping possibilities can be directed to artandarchitecture@trinitychurchboston.org.
