The Ashford/Harmonique Sculptural Felt Award for 2016 goes to Diane Krys for her work LIP SERVICE.
Lip Service is part of a series that looks at the ways dishonestly and misinformation are perpetuated. The orientation of the ‘faces’ within the felted sculpture tells the story of Lip Service where face to face talking is just an illusion.
“I found my true voice in fibre when I developed my own methods to combine rug hooking, felting and knitting. Felting moved my work into a more sculptural arena and has allowed me to create more expressive and personal work. I continue to be enchanted by the transformative properties of wool and my hands feel most connected to my heart and soul when I’m working with it.”
Thank you to Ashford Handicrafts of New Zealand and their Canadian wholesale distributor, Harmonique Fibre Arts Supply, for sponsoring this felt :: feutre canada award. The award is a gift certificate for $250.00 of Ashford products, provided by Harmonique Fibre Arts Supply.
