How beautifully insightful!!! I love fibers for exactly the reasons you just expressed. I have to say that knowing the question is over half the battle. Keep asking yourself that and it will all fall into place. I hope we get to meet in person!! We could probably talk for hours.
I came to fibers very young. It was my undergraduate degree: Fibers and papermaking. I guess it has never left me and I can not let it go. Over the last few years I have been using my deceased loved ones clothing in my work. In many ways continuing the Victorian sentiment toward mourning. Clothing is intimate and it really is our second skin and I feel close to them when I work with their clothing. How about you and fibers and metal?
Thank you so much and your work is just amazing! I can see your love of fiber in the work--exquisite patterning and texture. It is nice to meet you online! I hope we can meet next year at the SNAG conference.
Good morning, Vickie. Thanks so much for the compliments. I'm finding navigating through digital social networking is complicated. I hope being involved with Crafthaus will help. Will you be in Toronto in May at the SNAG conference?
