Monday Morning Inspiration

As I was looking around for inspiration on Shibori, I came across an incredible artist, Amy Nguyen. Her pieces are hand dyed, hand sculpted works of art. I think you'll find them, as well as the artist quite inspiring. You can read more about the designer here, http://www.amynguyentextiles.com/index.php/site/about/artist. She actually lives and works in Boston, MA.

    1. There are so many aspects of her work that are just incredible. I love the jacket with the seams on the outside and I also like the piece done with the strips. Actually, I love them all, but those 2 pieces really stand out for me. Glad you enjoyed the post!
