Winter Open House
December 1 • 11:00 am - 3:00 pm• Free
White Lotus Gallery is pleased to announce our annual Winter Open House, featuring new jewelry by Christine L. Sundt and Suzanne Linquist and hand-dyed silk scarves by Mihara Shibori.
Christine L. Sundt has been making jewelry since the mid-1990s and draws her inspiration from her surroundings, such as pieces of metal, faceted or natural stones, fibers, colors and textures. Creations are forged “as elements find each other through proximity, association and chance.”
Suzanne Linquist carves and turns ebony on a mini-lathe to create small sculptural forms for necklaces, earrings, pins and bracelets. The ebony forms are then embellished with silver elements to materialize Linquist’s design ideas.
Mihara Shibori Studio is the collaborative team of Barbara Setsu and Michael Tadao Pickett. They create patterned silk scarves using Shibori techniques from the Arimatsu and Kyoto regions of Japan that create rich patterns and textures on cloth using pressure resists.
