Images from 8th ISS Hong Kong
Thursday, January 19, 2012
The 8th Annual International Shibori Symposium just wrapped up in Hong Kong. I was so excited to see images from the show: it looked pretty spectacular! I can see pieces by Anne Evans (front jacket in sienna browns) and Jeung Hwa-Park (long, snake-like pieces; one in blue/green and the other in red/orange/purple). I wish I recognized some of the other work because it all looks amazing. I had a piece called Tendril Wrap in the show which you can just see on the mannequin to the right of the full red dress mannequin.
I really like the way the displayed it: wrapped with the tendrils on the inside. Not only did it show more of the shibori dye on the flat side of the felt, but it has a sort of reverse hedge-hog look to it. I would never have thought to do it that way but it is very cool!
