Kumo Fans

Kumo Fans was inspired by a memorable visit to the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden, an exquisite garden set in the heart of Vancouver. Winding through this serene garden were pathways laid in intricate geometric repeat patterns formed from broken pieces of blue and white crockery, many of which were edged in gold. In this contemporary interpretation, the three blue and gold fans are worked on Congress cloth in intricate Blackwork and Laid filling patterns using silk and metallic threads.
