Fibrous Forms: Untied

After creating a commissioned piece entirely from silk neckties, I was left with a big pile of "tie innards" -- strips of cloth in shades of white, ivory, sand. In the middle of one night, an inspiration came to me to use accordian folds and then string the folded fabrics together on a piece of red embroidery thread. Once in a while a red bead snuggles in a fold. I made this piece with the hope that the shadows would add another element to the whole -- and it worked!
