PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
Title: Everyday Kimono of my Memories
Description: stoneware clay, cone6, underglaze and glaze
Size: 14″ x 10″ x 2″ wall piece
This one of a series of kimono’s that I have made after two amazing trips to Japan, but my fascination with textiles and design began as a 6 yr old, when I began making my own original paper doll clothing. My degree is in Fashion design from Pratt Institute and my design teacher was the first Japanese person I had ever known. I’ve incorporated many actual garment making details into my clay work.
