Art in Fiber
...."The artists who create with fiber have united creativity and intuition, principles and skills to form an aesthetic entity. They have molded and extended the meaning of their medium and transcended technique and materials; they have liberated their work from tradition and thus heightened their recognition by critics and public.
The great works that have been produced in the fiber medium during the last decade have validated the whole movement. These achievements by a relatively small group of women and men of genius and talent have changed our visual concepts and comprehension."Beyond Craft: the Art Fabric Mildred Constantine and Jack Lenore Larsen
