|Sandra A. Brick||
Medium: Shibori, silk, velvet, beads
Size: 4" x 4" x 1/2"
Brick's wearable textile sculptures are unique in many ways. Color and pattern are created by Shibori--Japanese resist dyeing. Fabric is pinched, twisted, folded, and pleated. After the manipulated cloth is dyed, the securing stitches, clamps, or knots are removed to expose intricate patterns that have escaped the dye. The process is repeated to create ever more complex and interesting patterns.
