ReNew: The Words

Showing at BNY Mellon Contemporary Craft Satellite Gallery

This part of the ReNew Exhibition is a collaboration project with my daughter, Sarah Silk. Together, we are SilkDenim, re-making 100% recycled materials into individually crafted objects. We’re particularly attracted to denim because of its rugged practicality and unique ability to improve with age. ​Using recycled materials requires us to work with authentic details & create every piece anew, providing a unique one-of-a-kind object that emphasizes the craft & beauty of re-using over discarding.

Words of Wisdom came from our personal collections of words, phrases and inspirational quotes that permeate the internet. Why not translate them into a evocative textile that embody warmth, craft, and permanence?
