Sheila Hicks retrospective

Today I went to the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and saw a retrospective of Sheil Hicks’ work. She has taken tassel making to a whole new level. I’ve only used tassels once in my current work, on Traveler’s Mizrach. You can see it under Quilt Gallery 2013, above. She also had small tapestries, which I neglected to photograph, as well as other sculptural pieces. These ones using the wrapping/tassel technique were my favorite.

Here are some more photos of the retrospective.

The one above gives you an idea of how tall these pieces are. imageimage
