ABSTRACT
The article details how artist Judith Content creates her textile works and features some of them. She uses a unique interpretation of arashi shibori, the traditional Japanese dye technique. Content develops a unique version of arashi shibori that involves ironing intricate pleats into pre-dyed black silk. The pleated fabric is then wrapped around a clear glass bottle, secured with fine thread and dipped into a bleaching solution. Finally, when the shibori-dyed silk is unwrapped and ironed smooth, the hidden layers of pattern and color are revealed.
