ACC Atlanta 2014

The American Craft Council show in Atlanta has once again left me with a serious case of inspiration overload. There seems to be more and more fiber art, quite a lot of wearable fiber art. And even when no fiber is involved, there almost seems to be a kind of symbiosis with fiber art.

Check out some of the pieces:

By artist Cindy Grisdela, this piece makes my heart sing. Though she (perhaps) uses conventional solid quilt cottons, her composition, color choices, and machine quilting are extraordinary.

This is multi-layered glasswork, and it does not show properly in this pictures.  I think it is by Gali Chehirian.

Something about the fiber-like metal layering on this chime speaks to me.

Nine-patch in Glass

Another with a patchwork theme (IMO)
