Fredia Flowers - Tulip
Artist: Fredia Flowers
Materials: copper, sterling silver, rubber, leather
Size: 3 3/8" x 2"
Artist Statement: I had been wanting to work with hollow form construction and the fabric immediately inspired me to create a tulip using hollow form techniques. As I was making the piece, my thoughts kept moving forward to spring 2021 when the tulips will be in bloom and 2020 will be behind us.
Artist Bio: As long as I can remember, my creative medium of choice has been fabric and thread. I have spent many hours learning from my mother and grandmother, sewing clothes, quilting, crocheting and embroidery. In recent years, I have discovered a new passion, metals. My metalsmithing teachers along the way have encouraged a "can do" attitude opening my horizons to many techniques that I am excited to develop. I can't wait to see where this creative journey will take me next.
