Sculpture Works

Years ago I bought a reel of fine copper wire and knit up several small cloak-like shapes with the thought that I would incorporate feathers and possibly some strips of tapestry weaving to make korowai type figures.

However they were sort of lost in translation, so were put in the cavernous stash black-hole. 

So after 7 -8 years I finally found a use for one of them in this sculptural work below entitled "I'm Not Available Right Now"

Work includes copper wire, 24ct gold &ivory beads, porcelain doll parts, and mahogany.

Tapestry Weavings By Stephenie Collin


I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
