Quintessence: Shigeko Spear's Surface Design

Lee, Jana Vander
September 1997
Fiberarts;Sep/Oct97, Vol. 24 Issue 2, p41
The article offers information on the life and works of fiber artist Shigeko Spear. At midlife, she enrolled in the textile design program at the University of Kansas where weaving studios were still considered to be remnants of World War II occupational therapy or the government's effort to revive a textile sector. Spear began experimenting with screen printing and batik, which at the time was primarily seen as handcraft or industrial fabric production. To strengthen her field she became active in the Surface Design Association, served as president in 1990-1991 and chaired the conference in Seattle, Washington in 1992. Among her notable artworks are "Autumn Moon," "The Moon and Pool" and "Yuyake Gumo (Clouds in the Evening Glow)."
