Inspiring me - Emily Felderman
Just discovered textile artist, Emily Feldermans antique scissor series. Sumptious embroidery and antique scissors, what is there not to love and desire?
I find myself drawn again and again to artists who connect with antique objects, who are enchanted by the whispering echos of past lives, and importantly aspire to making them 'live' again,
She describes her work as
Vintage scissors have manys stories to tell; I like the idea of using them in new ways and wonder what they were used for before I found them? Stitching? Cutting papers? Utilitarian? Bonsai? They are now part of a complete art piece where their patina, scratches, and history are integrated and unified with my textile work.
