November 1 - 30 • FEATURED ART OF THE MONTH. Vicki Diamond, Leana Moonspinner.
Color is the first thing you notice about the quilted and felted fiber art pieces made by M Leana MoonSpinner. She has a unique ability to combine colors to remind you of a sunny autumn day or make you want to wrap up in a cozy quilt on a cold winter night. Her light summery placemats make your table look like a picnic. Next you notice the amazing variety of styles. There are a multitude of pieced and appliqued quilts. Traditional designs mingle with modern; whimsical with sophisticated.
Over the years Vicki Diamond has worked in a variety of artistic mediums, including wood, cement, encaustic, oil, alabaster, gourds, straw, and stone. However, after acquiring a llama, three alpacas, an angora rabbit, and two angora goats, she has turned in the past few years to creating with fiber, primarily by felting. Wet felting is an ancient craft that utilizes lubrication, agitation, and moisture to shrink and bond the fibers of wool together. Vicki washes, dyes, hand cards, then drum cards the fibers herself before felting them over silk or cotton into unique scarves and shifts. She also makes needle felted wall tapestries from the fiber and has a line of upcycled clothing.
