I’ve been embroidering and making things from cloth, yarn, thread, and string since I was a child. Doll clothes on a teeny tiny sewing machine, macramé as a teen in the 70s… you get the picture. But until a few years ago, I didn’t know that “fiber art” was a thing. My exploration is relatively new, but my inclination is lifelong. Watch this space.
For Uppercase Magazine's 'Yarn-Thread-String' volume of their Encyclopedia of Inspiration series, I created embroidered panel covers for my binding.
Experimental project using fiberglass screening, shredded fabric, thread and yarn.
Japanese thread balls were traditionally made by mothers and grandmothers for children, as gifts of happiness and ‘gentle love.’ They date back to the 8th century and are now a thriving cultural art form. Time-consuming to make, but worth it for the eye candy.
