I love their promotional postcard, don't you?!!?!?
My piece in this show is "Naturally Endowed," the largest of my clayfoot girls. Her face and feet are hand-sculpted of stoneware clay and have a unique "separating glaze" on them that has a sharply "crackled" texture. Her body is completely woven, and is comprised of over 500 stakes. She required over 100 hours to weave; that is, after hand forming the face, feet and armature. Woven of wire, waxed linen, and fashion (acrylic) yarns. I particularly love her scaly skin, and her cellulite.
Please see my facebook fan page or the Textile Center's Facebook Page for more information about the exhibition!
Faux cathedral window throw made from upcycled jeans and dress shirts ran through the wash twice. It has frayed nicely. I’ll be trimming long stings for awhile, but I am super happy with how it turned out. This was a class that I took at @perennialstl if anyone is interested in learning how to make one themselves. . . . #quilt #throw #denim #upcycle #recycle #quilting #singer #singerfeatherweight #featherweight #blog #bluejeans @perennialstl #perennialstl
