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.
