THE STORY BEHIND
The Victorian era language of flowers gives a host of meanings to iris flowers. They can represent faith, hope, courage, wisdom and admiration. ... Purple iris brings a message of wisdom and compliments, while a bouquet of blue iris blossoms speak of hope and faith.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each kimono shawl is individually hand drawn using a black gutta resist on natural white satin silk charmeuse.
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES and paintbrushes the color is applied and blended
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set, permanently fixing the dye color , then the silk is hand washed and ironed
THE FINISHED hand painted silk is then ready to be made into a One Of A Kind piece of wearable art. Each piece is hand cut , designed and sewn by Lynne Kiel.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in all my photos.
