simone pheulpin’s pinned pieces

France’s Simone Pheulpin has me thinking about fabric and sculpture and the power of pinning. Not the Pinterest type of pinning – actually pinning strips of folded fabric with straight pins.

Pheulpin creates the sculptures using hundreds of strips of cotton that she folds repetitively, each fold pinned into place and each pin hidden by the next fold. Amazing.

Watch the video to see the textile artist at work. If you speak French you can let us know what she is saying – though I think her art speaks for itself.

Glitches and such. . .

Thanks to all who wrote to tell me there was a glitch with my PayPal account yesterday. I’m happy to report that everything is in working order again!
