Ever since I remember I have loved
fragments of beautiful things. Faded postcards, old brocade, glass beads, scraps of fabric, all warmed
by human hands. In an age of High-resolution, there
is beauty to be found, in a world, seen through a soft lens.
the world of flickering old films, old records with surface noise,
scraps of things that are intriguingly imperfect and capture the mystery
of time. I drink from a beautiful old teacup that has a chip
on it ... but that chip has a story. All of my designs have a story,
some real, some imagined. That is what this collection is about. We
are writing stories through fabric.
The items in this collection are highly
personal and represent a passion for being around wonderful objects.
Authentic fabrics from the 30's, 40's and 50's, brass buttons from
World War II and ephemera have been harmoniously incorporated into
these designs. We have layered various materials to invite endless
exploration. Many techniques have been used in our work, including
hand stamping, fabric overlays, screening and appliqué. Our
philosophy is also woven in. We believe that being in the presence
of beautiful things is transporting.
Look closely -there are stories being told.
