150 Mile Radius, is a series of textiles created using materials gathered within 150 miles from my home in New York City. Working with local farms I connected with the farmers and met the animals used for my felted pieces. It allowed for a connection between the origin of the fibers and the eventual outcome. I was inspired by the lichens growing on the trees and the shapes in the bark found while foraging for local dye stuff to use in the series. Mushrooms and eucalyptus inspired the collection and were also used to naturally dye the raw wool and yarn. This reciprocal relationship between nature and society is demonstrated throughout my process. The wet felted textiles also explore fragility and stability. When purchasing a garment with holes as a key part of the original design, new holes and wear over time only add to the value and design.
