JANICE KISSINGER

REHOBOTH, MA

My pieces are sculpted rather than stitched. My designs are decidedly feminine. I seek to drape the body with the same beauty and grace of the traditional Indian saris I use in my work. I consider each piece a composition, inspired by a single vintage silk. I then respond to that by adding my own hand-dyed silks and loose wool fibers, using traditional wet felting methods (hand-rolling using just soap and water) to build both the fabric and the finished garment simultaneously. Creating couture results without sewing is an ongoing adventure and I strive to create finely finished pieces.
