I made this for a 3 day music festival called Rising Sun Rock Festival held every summer near my hometown in Hokkaido. There’s a lot to be improved but I think it turned out great considering I only had 3 days to work on and I’d never done an installation this big!
I’ve always wanted to make a trippy ass thread sculpture for a festival so yaaaay! Hope people enjoyed this!
check out these gorgeous soft sculpture dolls I saw at Atlantic Antic in Brooklyn last weekend! I wasn’t able to bring any of these lovely ladies home to be part of my Doll Fambly, but the artist has a shop on Etsy.
Ferne Jacobs has been creating three dimensional fiberwork since the 1970s. Inspired by ancient basketmaking technique, she feels a deep connection to a timeless past that emerges out of the earth bringing ancient ways into current time.
I found this amazing pictures of Ferne Jacobs’ works on prismofthreads.blogspot.com
We stumbled upon the exquisite work of Yumi Okita, a North Carolina-based artist, who creates beautiful botanical and insect fiber sculptures. Her creation mixes hand painted cotton fabric and fine embroidery work.
We love her giant moths so much! These would make perfect desk companion for our office, what do you think? :D

after a long break in the spring and slowly getting back to it over the last several months, this piece is done (not mounted, but done). i love it more than i expected to, especially since i was struggling to get back to it. i thought maybe something was wrong with it. but i just needed time off. now i’m ready to get so busy again, y'all!
