An interview with textile artists/embroiderer Mariel Clarmont in Paris, France is presented. Clarmont talked about her miniature embroideries and her chosen shape, the circle, which is the most difficult form to ask of fabric. She remarked that although her works are small, they are in fact about great expanses and are inspired by the evolution of the Cosmos. She also explained the importance of peace, concentration, and dedication when making an embroidery piece.
