Large "In Box Series"


(Above: In Box CLXXI.  Inventory # 3339. Framed:  33 3/4" x 21 3/4". $550 plus tax and shipping.  Click on image to enlarge.)

I love making these colorful pieces!  Each one is an abstraction of an imaginary city seen from an aerial perspective.  This concept reflects my admiration for Friedenreich Hundrethwasser's amazing Vienese condominiums.  My fiber cities are unique because every dwelling/box is decorated to reflect the unique, creative individuals who reside there.

The large "In Box Series" pieces are stitched to a piece of off white acid-free mat board and mounted into a 1" black linen liner and placed into an exterior frame.  Glass is positioned between the frame and the liner assuring that it never comes into contact with the artwork.  The retail price is $525.  These pieces are wired for vertical hanging but can be rewired for a horizontal presentation.  All of these pieces are actually sold.  I'm working on more and can always take a commission, including custom sizes.

Just for the sake of variety, my husband Steve put two large "In Box" series pieces into off-white linen liners.  They are a little further below.  (Yet, any of these pieces can be switched ... off-white to black or black to off-white!  Just let me know!)
