Would love to see in situ the spectacular macramé installation shown on top created by Jakarta-based fiber artist Agnes Hansella. The pieces are titled Mountain, Ocean, and Sunset to reflect the natural environment in the area. She has also created smaller amazing pieces ranging from decorative wall hangers to hammocks, umbrellas, and stools. She’s a self-taught artist who’s been doing textile art since 2017.
Looks like we have another craft to learn, Nanduti lace. The name means “spider web” in the indigenous language of Paraguay. The lace is worked on tightly stretched frame and are released by cutting away the backing fabric. The samples shown above are the work of Japanese Nanduti artist, Eriko Watabe. She sells elegant accessories under her brand name Puka.
The artist can be followed on Facebook and Instagram. She also has a shop here on Japanese Base shop select market.
