These sculptures are created by sewing together pieces of hand-painted silk over a wire armature, which is then stuffed like a pillow. Beads are sewn onto the entire piece, with more in some places than others, following the shapes and colors of the painted silk beneath.
The result is tactile and fragile yet strong. The feel of the beads on the surface, as well as the squishiness of the soft stuffing, and the strength of the armature wire are all part of the experience of these objects.
