Craftforms 2006

16 November 2006

This week I sent two pieces to Wayne Art Center for Craftforms 2006. I was invited to send two pieces, so I sent two long vests. Very different techniques but similar garment shape, hopefully they will look good together and yet still be intriguing.
Tiffany Vest was started with spider webs and stitched shibori, dyed three times in beige, pink and brown, then was finished with arashi shibori:

The next vest was made with a singed shibori technique from silk illuion.

Altho’ these pieces have been exhibited before, the only labels we had in them were tyvek. We printed some new ones on ribbon thet we ironed on to freezer paper. I think it worked out well.

    Did you use silk ribbon?

    No, I think it was nylon. Chose it because of the color. All the silk ribbons were white.
