One Dot at a Time

Sep 21, 2012

by Alison Feldmann

As an avid polka dot kinda lady, I can always go for a good dot: the artwork of Yayoi Kusama, cheetahs, Dippin’ Dots. When I came across this cute 1920s-style video by Sarah of The Bocket Store, I knew I had to share it. Enjoy.

    Love the bowls. The process seems very tedious.. I would probably go crazy after a couple minutes and just paint the entire thing a solid color.

  • BourgeoisDesigns said 7 years ago

    Awesome!

  • bestfrienddee said 7 years ago

    Yaay Sarah Bocket! My booth mate at Renegade Craft Fair Chicago this year. Wonderful video and wonderful work. You all should buy some of her amazing dotted bowls, they are even more beautiful in person. Then come buy a hand woven scarf from me, herronclothier.com Congrats Sarah!

  • Dulcinea17 said 7 years ago

    Is it only strange to me that it is in b&w and you talk about all the colors of the rainbow? :) Besides that, love it, the music is great and I bet the patience and a steady hand took weeks to master :)

  • EFT4MeDebi said 7 years ago

    OK. I'll say it, I'm not shy. Black & white video to showcase colors? I guess the intention is for us to want to see all the colors. Because our curiosity is nipping...so we head to your shop. OK original..
