more fiber art

these are two pieces of 2-D fiber art by an artist named chad alan. they were part of a larger installation displayed at the 2004 artomatic show in dc. the pieces were made using various scraps of fabric, thread, and yarn sewn and stitched together. i would have bought more, but i couldn't afford them. i had to pick the two i absolutely could not live without. they are two of my most prized possessions.

i discovered another amazing fiber artist today; her name is agata olek. check out the photos of her wearable sculptures on her website. isn't that crocheted wedding dress amazing? i came across her work because she did some crocheted set pieces for a dance performance that my friend jon was involved in.

i personally haven't been knitting much this week. i'm still working on my cotton candy hat, take two. i did put up our halloween decorations, not that it took very long. it's just a ceramic jack o lantern, a hanging skeleton, and some stringy spider web stuff on the porch. we still have to go get our pumpkin. halloween is my favorite holiday, i can't wait!

I came across your blog site recently. What dre my attention was your knitting. I have a friend in Los Angeles who is seeking some one who knits well. She's an editor and director of a company by the name of

Green Room works with artist, product companies, designers, etc. I think you should check them out. I believe the website is under construction and is due to relaunch at the end of October.

that IS a lovely dress. I can't believe it, actually. That is some really beautiful work.

for the first piece i was involved in that featured agata olek's work, she built a huge sculpture made entirely of crocheted ballons. you might say "crocheted ballons, that's impossible!" and you'd be right... but she did it... some photos are online at Jane Jerardi's site. photo 1 - photo 2 - photo 3
