• Theworkof49artistswhopioneernewwaysofusingfibertodecorateourbodies
• Creative use of a multitude of materials, including lace, horse feedbags,
Velcro, and fishing line
• Comments from each artist provide insights about how the body breathes
life into the artworks
Wearable fiber art, whether in garment or jewelry form, is unique in that
the human body breathes life, shape, and movement into the pieces. Be it a
felted brooch or a dress made of book pages, wearable fiber art can provide
personal expression unavailable from the world of mass production. In this
volume of the acclaimed three-book series, comments from the makers,
who discuss creating pieces that the wearer influences, are accompanied by
more than 300 photos. SusanTaber Avila offers insights towhat wearable art
means and how fibers play into that combination, and Margery Goldberg
discusses the term in relation to jewelry. The hundreds of creations here,
bridging art, design, craft, and fashion, show how fiber art that relates to the
human body is in a class of its own.
