    Lauren DiCioccio is an amazing embroiderer and sculptor, her series sewnnews applies unusual colors and shapes in a painterly way to bring new life to the familiar aesthetic of the newspaper.  She uses the same process with other objects both antiquated and common. 

  2. Artist: Pernille Snedker Hansen

    As the founder of Snedker Studios, Pernille Snedker Hansen uses nature as her inspiration for creating surfaces to challenge the aesthetics of interior spaces.  By combining western marbling with Japanese suminagashi, Pernille emphasizes the growth rings with vibrant pigments in her appropriately titled work Marbelous Wood.  

    As a student at North Bennet Street School, I had the opportunity to learn and practice marbling.  It’s a fascinating process, where pigments float and spread on top a watery surface and once you lay your paper down the pigments are captured into the fibers.
