Domestic Robot exhibit at Frog Hollow

If you find yourself in Burlington this month (that would be July 2011) take a stroll down Church Street to Frog Hollow, the Vermont State Craft Center.


Through the front window you'll see captivating and comical robots by John Brickles attired in sustainably created aprons by yours truly. It is a great honor for me to be paired with John in this two person show at the gallery.


For this series of retro-inspired aprons I collected skirts, button-down shirts, and home textiles from local thrift stores over the past year, then added vintage fabrics from my own stash and trimming from my production of wrap skirts.


Each apron is one of a kind, made entirely from textiles that may have otherwise been wasted, certainly transformed from their original intent.


Also on display and for sale in the front of the gallery are my signature wrap skirts, HotHolders(tm) and key fobs. Show runs through July. If you can't make it to Burlington have a look at the photo album of the aprons I created for the exhibit.
