Book Summary:

Sculpture is no longer limited to materials like stone or metal. Sculpting in fabric is shown in ingenious detail here, with more than 350lavish photographs of 3-D cloth configurations along with insightful profiles of the 78artists who created them. The images and text capture the currents that are powering these works, like the do-it-yourself (DIY) movement established in the 1990s and the current revival of the revolutionary sculptural cloth of the 1960s. Works are approached through five themes: investigating nature, capturing the ephemeral, playing with space, telling a story, and "Take Heed." In her foreword, renowned fiber art expert Josephine Stealey helps us put this art form in context, from its origins in 1880 England's arts and craft movement to today. This is essential reading and inspiration for collectors, students, home artists, and anyone who appreciates innovative artwork.

Book Summary:

Within the borders of present-day Ghana and Togo, there exists an immemorial tradition of weaving. Inspired by the demands of royalty and ceremony or of the wealthy for rich display, the weavers of the Ashanti and Ewe tribes have created cloths that combine colour and pattern to fabulous effect. So important were these masterpieces of textile art - worn like the togas of ancient Rome - that at one time costly foreign silks were imported, only to be unravelled for weaving afresh. Exuberantly West African in colour and composition, these textiles are made from narrow lengths of cotton or silk, first woven on small drag looms, then cut and sewn together - the product therefore of a weaver's artifice combined with the ingenuity of the craftsman at matching, or brilliantly mismatching, the patterns on strips of cloth. The impact of these bands of colour is often balanced and enhanced by the woven details of motifs. Anteaters, combs, hands, letters, as well as seemingly abstract forms, provide a vocabulary of information for the owner and the onlooker, an indication of prestige or rank, or simply a reflection of the key elements of everyday life. The textiles are depicted in over 130 glorious colour plates. The text includes a full description of the origin and technical composition of each example, a thorough historical survey and an explanation of the methods of weaving, as well as of the use of cloths. This is a book of spectacular colour and pattern that will captivate everyone interested in textile history, in African culture, or in tribal art, and anyone who responds to craftsmanship and display of immense originality and vitality.

Book Summary:

Strange Material explores the relationship between handmade textiles and storytelling. Through text, the act of weaving a tale or dropping a thread takes on new meaning for those who previously have seen textiles—quilts, blankets, articles of clothing, and more—only as functional objects. This book showcases crafters who take storytelling off the page and into the mediums of batik, stitching, dyeing, fabric painting, knitting, crochet, and weaving, creating objects that bear their messages proudly, from personal memoir and cultural fables to pictorial histories and wearable fictions. Full-color throughout, the book includes chapters on various aspects of textile storytelling, from "Textiles of Protest, Politics, and Power" to "The Fabric of Remembrance"; it also includes specific projects, such as the well-known and profoundly moving Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, as well as poetry mittens, button blankets, and stitched travel diaries. Offbeat, poetic, and subversive, Strange Material will inspire readers to re-imagine the possibilities of creating through needle and fabric. Leanne Prain is the co-author (with Mandy Moore) of Yarn Bombing, now in its third printing, and the author of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery. A professional graphic designer, Leanne holds degrees in creative writing, art history, and publishing.
