Velvet Plume, Winnipeg, MB: Fibre
Venue Section: Eckhardt Hall/Main Floor
In addition to my clothing line, I create functional textile art using baskets and pillows as my media: sculptural art for everyday living. Each basket has a life of its own, echoing contours and hues found in nature. I use the fluidity of the rope on the sewing machine and “throw” the baskets like a potter at the wheel. The pillows are art pieces, textured, and detailed with mixed fibres and free-flow stitching.
