Jurors: nancy pollack and joan hutten

 

Statement:

This month's selection of three items for recognition was a challenge. The jurors were very impressed with the quality and originality of all the work.


While there were few theme submissions, the jurors thought Floris Flam's "Fibonacci #1" was intriguing, with the juxtaposition of the floral and mathematical motifs. The jurors also want to note that Marisela Rumberg's repurposed pillow, from a blouse, was an appropriate and clever example of use of commercial garments.

Recognitions:

Floris Flam, machine pieced quilt, "Fibonacci #1," $400

Mary Shultz, earrings (2 pairs); bean, seed and glass beads, $30 each

Sylvia Saborio, scarf; nuno felted silk and wool, $125

   Mary Ann Robinson    I am most at home with knitting needles in my hands. In particular, I love creating complex textures with simple knit and purl stitches. Now retired from a career in science, I hand-paint yarn and create surface designs on silk in my “laboratory.”

   Sylvia Saborio    I come from a family of tinkerers and problem-solvers. My approach to most endeavors—including fiber art—reflects that tradition. I love to experiment with new materials and techniques in order to create things that are functional, practical, and fun to wear. I am keenly aware that, by virtue of his/her creativity and ingenuity, an artist is able to create value that far exceeds the material cost of an item, and that is what I aim to do with my creations.
