A brand new year, a brand new start. Seasons change and life thrive. It is a magical atmosphere with joy, challenge and adversity that testing our abilities. In Chinese culture, completing something in a pleasant or satisfactory way, we call it “yuan-man”, which means to round off.
About my Journey series:
I love to collect fabrics that I encounter when traveling. It does not need to represent the local culture. As long as I find the fabrics, thread, buttons, sequins or ribbons interesting, I will collect them. These mementos bring memories and reinforce the traveling experience. It is fun and feasible to apply my long collected materials in my work. Therefore, I might create more than 5 works in the series. It is full of possibilities.
Materials: silk velvet collected during my visit to France, silk, silk thread, beads, sequins, chiffon
Techniques: hand pieced, hand appliqué, crocheted, hand quilted, yoyo
