4 Big Fans


When it comes down to it, I’d have to say this is all about those four big fans.

  1. Love those fans (I’m a fan fan), but the rectangles are nice, too.


    • Linda – are you familiar with a ceiling fan company call Big Ass Fans? You’d probably be a fan of their fans, too. And, yes, there ARE a lot of rectangles in here….


      • I was not familiar with Big Ass Fans, but I see on their website just now that they sell fans that are 24 feet in diameter. Now that is a Big Ass Fan. Did I ever show you a picture of the embroidery I did on my linoleum print (printed on cloth) based on my photo of an industrial fan in Cortez, Florida? I can get kind of carried away about fans . . .


      • My architect friends tell me that they have to be careful with some of their clients about making reference to “big ass” fans, to make sure it’s understood to be a brand name. In my opinion, it’s one of the best brand names I’ve heard – funny, unforgettable, and descriptive.

        I do not believe that you’ve shared the embroidery on a print from a photograph (Did I get that right?) but I would be very interested in seeing it!


      • Try this page: https://www.surfacedesign.org/image/fan-embroidered. And here’s a detail: http://www.clevelandjewishnews.com/material-matters/image_9eee6f20-5e42-11e1-a742-001871e3ce6c.html. The print was not printed directly from the photograph. It started as a drawing based on my photograph; I transferred the drawing to the linoleum block, carved the block, and printed it on three different kinds of cloth. One was a print with white ink on black satin; one was a print with black ink on white satin, which I then quilted. And one was a print with black ink on white canvas that I embroidered. The Beck Center show had the original photo and the three prints. I was in Florida when the show was up and only have installation shots to prove it.


      • Linda! That’s beautiful! It’s always a surprise to find out what ELSE people do, when I know them only from photography blogs.

        Thank you so much for letting me know about one of your other talents.


      • Thanks, Melinda! Other talents? Like someone who is an urban, regional, and historic-preservation planner as well as an environmental designer and architect? Hmm, yes we can do many things.
