Creating Contemporary Liturgical Textile Art Since 2005

What Inspires Me?

Origami Crane Mobiles

As chair of my church’s Arts Committee we taught everyone in my church to fold origami cranes to create a mobile for a special liturgical season of peace and justice. The finished piece was circular and hung down 11 feet in the front of our church. A friend of mine suggested the strings of cranes would make a good visual for a stole. I combined simplified line drawings from the folding instructions and a couple of new angles to find a collection of silhouettes that could be arranged to create the kind of randomness I was seeking. It has become a very popular and adaptable design and works equally well for stoles, vestments, and paraments.
