Fine Art Ceramics and Sculptures


Fiber Art Wear

I went out on a limb and did something quite different than my usual artwork with clay.I needed a challenge to get me up and running again! I painted "Whimsy Woman" on fabric, then appliqued it onto the back of a tabard made out of black fabric, I then sewed together . Ugh! This was submitted for the tabard challenge for the San Antonio Fiber Art Style Show . To my surprise, I won the Tabard Challenge. What was so exciting my sister, Sandra Edsall won the Best of Show! This wasn't rigged really!! By vote of 300 attentees.

I really enjoyed painting whimsy woman on fabric. I have to admit I did a lot of complaining

and whining (my sister says) when I realized I had to finally sew a tabard using my 1970 Elna

sewing machine to submit for the tabard challenge. She pushed me all the way!!!

I used a mix of acrylic, fabric medium and fabric paints for my painting. I accented

with a gold metallic pen. The hair is Lutradur treated with paints and heat.
