THE STORY BEHIND
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each design silk top is individually hand drawn using a black gutta resist on natural white pure silk charmeuse.
WITH SILK DYES and paintbrushes the color is applied and blended by hand creating one of a kind combinations
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set, permanently fixing the dye color , then the silk is hand washed and ironed
THE FINISHED painted silk is then ready to be made into a One Of A Kind piece of wearable art. Each top is hand cut and hand made which may result in slight variations. The top is 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.
