I love the geometric patterns that are frequently found in textiles throughout the world. This bag was inspired by this geometry, and is accented by using recycled sari silk from India. Using a modified shibori technique, I’ve embedded white merino ovals amongst folded and layered Indian silk, which itself features a subtle geometric pattern. On this, layers of exotic fibers including top merino, Tibetan yak, bamboo, and more silk give the blue and purple colors of the silk an iridescent blue, green, and purple hue.

This wrap was originally created as a submission piece to benefit breast cancer research. The title refers to the cellular battle that takes place within the body of those fighting breast cancer: hot and fiery cancer cells attempt to envelope cool and calm healthy cells. This piece seeks to represent this struggle, yet reflect the beauty that exists in the spirit of the women (and men) that struggle with breast cancer. Make no mistake about it, this is a lovely piece of wearable art.

This wrap was inspired by the waterlily ponds I gazed at as a child in south Florida. It is fully reversible. One side reflects the cojoined colors within the water, including leaf green, flower petal brights, and gold fish oranges; the other side reflects the top of the water, with waterlilies, their pads, and swirling fish currents.
