Felted Art Bra for Charity
Earlier this year Lori Bier, came into LF for fiber to work on her donation for Art Bra Austin called “Silver Lining.” As an experienced fiber artist who is also a belly dancer, Lori also has expertise in creating belly dance costumes for which she paints gorgeous silk veils.
“I made clouds of varying greyness/storminess and assembled them into a cup shape, using a styrofoam egg. They’re beaded, representing rain and lighting. The front opens (velcro closures) to reveal the silver cloud lining.
This is an entry for the Breast Cancer Resource Center‘s signature fundraiser, Art Bra Austin. My entry, which includes a silk veil with clouds and a rainbow, reminds people of the hope of the rainbow after the storm. Art Bra Austin, held every year, offers all sorts of opportunities to use felting techniques for beauty and good.”
