Artistry in Fiber Vol 3: Wearable Art

171013
Anne Lee

Description

Wearable fibre art, whether in garment or jewellery form, is unique in that the human body breathes life, shape and movement into the pieces. Be it a felted brooch or a dress made of book pages, wearable fibre art can provide personal expression unavailable from the world of mass production.

In this volume, comments from the makers, who discuss creating pieces that the wearer influences, are accompanied by more than 300 photos. Susan Taber Avila offers insights to what wearable art means and how fibres play into that combination, and Margery Goldberg discusses the term in relation to jewellery.

The hundreds of creations, bridging art, design, craft and fashion, show how fibre art that relates to the human body is in a class of its own.
