One of the best things about being involved in the designs for Red Heart is getting to know the work of so many talented people. Paul DuBuc is a great example. He has taken our beloved Red Heart Super Saver and created some of the most awe-inspiring art pieces I’ve ever seen. He told me how he first became interested in God’s Eyes while attending concerts by the Grateful Dead and other rock groups back in the sixties, and noticing that they placed God’s Eyes on the stage.
I had made simple God’s Eyes as a child…may have been in my Girl Scout years….but I never imagined that anyone had taken the humble weaving to a level like Paul’s. The God’s Eyes I made were like this on two twigs…or was it toothpicks? I have one that my daughter made that she liked to put on the Christmas tree. I see that now there are instructions for making them with children on YouTube.
If you are interested in seeing more of Paul DuBuc’s work, he has an Etsy Shop that features his God’s Eyes. The photo shown here, God’s Eyes in the Forest, is a beautiful array of Paul’s pieces.
