“ Combine It ”
Creative Get Up -- Sandra Thompson (Russell - Bay of Islands)
-a playful balance between the ancient arts of weaving & felting, combining colour& design into Art to Wear
You're My Ace
Creativity with colour fibre and design is my passion. Between my creations using natural fibres and dyes, I am exploring other ways to bring Flax/Harakeke into wearable art works.
However "You're My Ace" is about colour and play, not a traditional representation of weave. Although traditional and innovative techniques have been used in this piece to create two very functional works.
At the centre of my work is a profound and ever-growing interest in fibre, colour & design.
I am engaged closely and intuitively with the varying characteristics of each medium I use, combining Art with Design, and Design with the needle.
