Silk, vintage brooch
7.5 Inches x 10 Inches x 5 Inches
My handbags and evening bags are crafted from both new silk and reclaimed fabric from vintage kimonos. The bags are embellished with vintage elements such as Art Deco buttons and mid-century brooches and are characterized by their striking geometry.
In my work, I try to reflect the harmony and balance I so admire in traditional Japanese craft, as well as the geometry of Art Deco. It could be that my fondness for precise, geometric forms is a legacy from a previous career in computer mapping.
