THE STORY BEHIND
The peacock feather represented kindness, compassion, good luck, patience & benevolence. Asian culture:- the Peacock is associated with Quan Yin who is an emblem of love, good-will & kindness. Buddhist:- Peacock feathers are associated with openness as the bird displays everything when they spread their feathers.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each design silk jacket 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 by hand creating one of a kind color 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 fashionable piece of wearable art. Each piece is hand cut, hand made, then 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.
