Return to: Fiber Collage Series I: Prayer Flags

Joy by Anya Doll


20x20 fiber collage includes lace, fabric threads, ribbons and yarn. Some also include feathers (emu or chicken or wild bird). This series was inspired by Tibetan Prayer Flags. Each consists of hundreds of components all sewn together using a free-form stitching style and dozens of colors of threads. All materials are recycled except the occasional thread. The backing piece is a napkin, also recycled from a friend's catering business. It is stitched with free-form edging that includes the name of the piece and artist's name sewn backward, drawing humility.
