Holes: The Essence of Lace, I Believe

I’ve just realized that I’ve had a love of ‘holes’ for some time, and of course they are the essence of ‘lace’ which I see as patterns of holes, though others might see ‘lace’ as patterns of threads.

This morning I went back through my photos to find some I’ve loved and recorded in the past few years:

Anyway these samples and details show some of the ways I’ve used ‘holes’ in the past few years.
