This piece is entitled Kimono and it was inspired by a trip to Japan. I incorporated some Japanese coins and I also digitally printed a map of Kyoto on cloth that I used in the work. This is a wrapping and coiling process. A silky bead cord is wrapped around a paper wire cord and coiled from the bottom up. It was carefully planned and designed in such a way that I would be able to attach elements with a curved needle and form the rows needed to make the kimono shape. It is a teapot sculpture done for a gallery in Pittsburgh, PA (Morgan Contemporary). As illustrated there is no high density foam armature for this one or any others that I have created using this process.
