The Found Object In Textile Art

Taps into one of the most popular textile trends today: the use of the found object. The author is one of the UK's leading textile artists. Contains a wealth of techniques and inspiration illustrated with the best textile art from around the world. Textile artists have always used found objects, both for decoration and to imbue their work with meaning, and recently the practice has become even more popular. Cas Holmes is renowned for her use of 'the found', and her many-layered, atmospheric pieces have been shown around the world.

The practice differs from recycling in that the objects often remain 'themselves' when they are incorporated into the work. The work is often conceived and built around the found object. The definition 'found object' can include a wide range of objects, from natural materials such as driftwood and leaves to old bits of machinery and vintage fabrics. Mundane objects such as CD cases can be used to create stunning pieces of art, or more sentimental items such as old jewelry can lend deep meaning to a work. This book contains a wealth of techniques and inspiration for incorporating found objects into your textile work.
