Fiber Art Today, and Longing for High End Craft Object

What makes fiber art? Art that is created using natural or synthetic fibers or techniques that are traditionally thought of as relating to fiber, such as sewing or weaving. Only one of these – fiber materials or fiber techniques -must be present for work to fall into the broad category known as “fiber art”.

While contemporary fiber art is often preoccupied with materiality and technique, it’s important to also remember that the best work in fiber, like any medium, has observations, themes, or concepts at its core.
