Local Art Becomes Wearable
Having worked in product development with international aritsts I love it when I witness artists taking it upon themselves to repurpose their art for unique applications. Painter Barbara Fisher has recently done this by launching her new design website. She has taken digital images of her paintings to create mirror-image patterns, which are printed onto silk crepe de chine. Backed with solid colored silk habotai the fabric is sewn into luxurious and contemporary, 10″ x 60″ scarves. All are hand made right here in North Carolina. To view these products and others go to “FishcakeDesign.net. I particularly love her use of stories. Very smart Barbara!
Need I mention that Christmas is coming.
