I had a birthday at the end of last month and have been wanting a specific book for ages. My lovely sister gave it to me for my birthday and I am slowly working my way through it.
'Dimensional Cloth' by Andra F. Stanley
Foreward by Jospephine Stealey
If you are interested in 3-dimensional work of any kind, particularly in textiles then this is a must-have.
The book features the work of 78 artists and is wonderfully illustrated throughout. It's easy to dip into and and read about the work of one artist at a time so that you can really enjoy it. I find reading and looking at too much at one time overwhelming so this is the perfect format for me. A few highlights of the book follow . . . .
Charlotte Bailey 'Kintsugi Collection' 2016
Judy Kahle Betty Busby
'Emerging from Retirement' 2013 'Ginger Jar' 2014
There are so many amazing examples I could've chosen to show here but I just dipped in and snapped a photo of whatever caught my eye.
The last 2 are particular favourite as I have a bit of a history of making vessels myself.
More on that another time.
