About Me – Deborah Pym Harowitz
The one thing that inspires me, grabs my attention, or just plain excites me is COLOR! It is my tool of choice to create emotion in my work. Fabric, yarns or paints are usually my medium. I’m inspired by our planet (and saving Mother Earth), leaves, architecture, philosophical concepts, and the Cosmos. I love textures and textural contrasts, hence glass is a favorite addition to my fiber work. I often use circles in my work to illustrate the cyclic nature of things. You will also see squares or grids as I feel comforted by a certain amount of boundaries. I aspire to create a mood rather than a statement. I will occasionally employ realism to make sure my point is understood but prefer working abstractly. Usually, I just like to create a feeling that is pleasant or uplifting. For me, the finished product is a bonus. It’s the journey, the work, the color and materials that are my bliss.
Welcome to my Blog
I am Deborah Pym Harowitz and I play with color and texture in the form of yarn, glass and fabric (and other odd bits). These are my artistic medium(s). I hope to share my successes and failures with you through these pages. One can always hope that there will be more of the former than the later
I have plans for the future – more art, more glass, more fiber. Specifics? I’ll let you know when I figure them out.

What else might you see here? My wonderful hubby is learning hot glass and you will occasionally get a glimpse of his work here too. Our talented daughter will continue to add her creative influence as she always has – even though she is working at becoming a world famous Playwright. You have seen her as my model on occasions (she does it so much better than I do!) but her influence , tho vast, will probably not be obvious to my readers.
I work part-time in a yarn shop and teach knitting (sock) classes. If you are ever in the greater Detroit area, come see us at Heritage Spinning & Weaving.
Watch for new additions; a gallery of work, designs and (occasionally) finished work for sale at my Etsy Shop . Progress may be slow, I’m not the most organized or disciplined person alive (stop chuckling, Mom!). But life is good and I will stop to smell the lavender along the way ;o)
