Artist Interview - Bhakti Ziek

Since your blog-keeper here is of the slow learning curve, I've only just now learned how to embed videos. Finally!

Bhakti Ziek is an amazing weaver who lives in Randolph, VT.  She recently completed and installed 'Stardust', a commission for Whitman College, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.

The piece is composed of six panels each 16 feet high x 27.25" wide. It is a handwoven jacquard made of silk, rayon, and metallic yarns.

The video here gives insights to her process & inspiration. Enjoy!

Artist Interview - Pamela Druhen

Pamela Druhen of Northfield, VT is an amazing maker of art quilts, as well as an instructor. With fabric, thread, and the inspiration nature gives her, Pamela creates 'Threadscapes'.

This video is a wonderful interview with the artist, giving a glimpse into her process. Enjoy!
