I had a recent email from the lovely Mary Jane Dodd
. She's been weaving and stitching wondrous airy creations...most notably her mysterious leaves and her peace flags
It seems that she's also been curious about the fiber artist, Junko Oki
. She googled Junko and to her surprise ended up seeing my post about Junko's book, Poesy.
Mary Jane wanted more info about Junko so I headed off to her site...just as much to satisfy my own curiosity about what Junko was up to as it was to provide a link for Mary Jane.
What I found out is that Junko Oki has published a new book called, culte a la carte
! Of course, I had to order a copy.
Although it is a small paperback, unlike the hardcover Poesy
, it still has her incredibly rich stitchery.
|Really like this piece as it reminded me of an eye!|
Each page spread is a front and back (or back and front...they are both works of art!) of each small piece.
I think this book and Poesy
will be perfect to share with students in my spring workshop on Healing Cloth at The Art League School.
