Luminescent : a transparency study
On day, Dominique noticed a quilt with its back to the sun. The light filtering differently through the batting and the fabric layers, the gaps, the seams... The fiber artist sees a world to discover.
Luminescent was born from this fiber's transparency study. The design is simple, but the creation and assembly required a great deal of precision.
The fabric research was a feat of its own : the fiber artist needed to make the right combination to allow the finish piece to completely transform when the light is turned on and off.
