Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
I love the collaborations the You Are Beautiful sticker people do with artists that become beautiful, artistic fiber art work! This month’s artist collector series special gift, a beautiful silk screened square of soft fabric, is designed and hand drawn by Frances MacLeod.
Recently I’ve grown really interested in decorative ornament, as it represents striving to make something technically and obsessively beautiful. The investment of time and human labor is intended to signify importance. Since time is our most limited resource, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can use it to convey value and worth. It could be used as a tiny handkerchief or a patch, or you could hang it on your wall or carry it in your pocket.
So often, we take the fibers in our life for granted! We are wrapped in fabrics from the moment of our birth until our death! We sleep between their warm, comforting caress. We lounge and stretch out on large expanses of fabric on our furniture! We wiggle our toes into the carpet under our feet, keeping us warm and happy. We are deeply connected to the fibers in our life; how delightful to have one that is precious, beautiful and handy as well. A little fiber art for your purse or pocket.
