Friday favourites

Just a few works that have caught my eye in the past couple of weeks.


Michelle Griffiths, Cross Pollination series

Michelle Griffiths uses shibori techniques but without the dye to create beautiful 3D forms. I’ve noted before that when the fabric is pleated, folded, stitched or tied before dyeing, it often looks very attractive. Michelle has worked this concept into an art form. I missed her exhibition earlier this year at the Lesley Craze Gallery, but I would love to attend one of her workshops.



Velcro necklace by Yong Joon Kim

Yong Joo Kim received her Master of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the Rhode Island School of Design. So she’s used to working with silver and precious metals, but her latest collection of jewellery is made from Velcro.



Knitted stool covers by Claire Anne O'Brien

Claire-Anne O’Brien is an Irish textile designer who specialises in knitting. I love her huge-scale knitted stool covers.
