Fiber Dyeing Commission

10lbs of silk fiber

Custom color matched and dyed for the Steppenwolf Theatre. This is 25% of the job drying on a rack Brian rigged for the job.

This is how they used the fiber....

The perfect technique to create the flowers was silk fusion...I showed them a couple of the hats I made with silk fiber that I "hand painted" a few of my felt flowers. The felt would have been too matt and wintery feeling. I count 40 flowers there!

My intern, Heather, saw the show with her husband and captured these photos for me.
