New Fabric Artist Clare Kirby

Clare is a fabric artist from Tweed Ontario. Her pieces are all hand made and hand sewn.

Tweed Morsels

Morning Mouse Morsels and Late Night Snakes were inspired by a pair of Barred Owls that inhabit the trees surrounding my home. The Audubon Bird Guide describes their call as saying, “Who cooks for you” which makes me wonder what is on the menu for breakfast or dinner?

Their construction uses wool that was dyed with onion skins and tea leaves, and silk that was dyed with rusty nails and black walnut.
