šŸ’„ “HANDWOVEN” TOTEMS

The following pieces are from our ‘Handwoven’ Serenity Totem Series. Each is a contemporary, one-of-a-kind, cylindrical, 3D, mixed-media fiberart sculpture. Each features a unique handwoven element conceived and created exclusively for the piece by fiber artist Kathy Kistner. The original woven fiber work is created either on a floor loom, custom lap loom, or upright Navajo loom. Each is beautifully blended with specially selected upcycled components, which may include abandoned Couture remnants, reimagined cut scrap leathers or suede, chosen bindings from among luxurious mercerized cotton yarns, ultra-soft bamboo threades, stranded metallics, and plush wool windings. There may be other recycled elements as may enhance the final artwork. When the finished piece is ultimately envisioned, and all materials collected – the final build design is created by Rob Kistner on his MAC CAD design station. This garauntees a tight, accurate final fabrication, for a gorgeous high quality piece.

Each of these pieces feature a one-of-a-kind handweaving by Kathy

The two (2) pictures below are different perspectives of five (5) new one-of-a-kindĀ Handwoven Serenity Totems being prepared for final creation. They will all feature original Rippsmatta weaves created by Kathy. Four (4) will feature Ikat hand dying in her signature motion pattern. Many more elements will need be measured, fit, cut and carefully applied before each piece will be finished. These elements can include leather, suede, mercerized windings, metalics, woods, couture remnants, acrylics, and a variety of other found, fabricated, and reclaimed components. The penultimateĀ step will be to cut lacquer and fit color coordinated top and bottom pieces. Then finally a mounting piece will be designed, fabricated, and affixed so the Serenity Totem can be beautifully displayed.
