More interviews with some of the best in the wuiltind world

Marion Barnett sent me one of her books, a great resource for fiber artists.

ZI’ve just recently received a book from the talented UK fiber artist Marion Marnett. It is about a product called  Lutradur .

It seems  relatively unknown here in the states, certainly seems to be used infrequently. In any case, I’ve not  heard about it, until reading  Marion’s Face Book page .https://www.facebook.com/marion.barnett]. She is enthusiastic and that enthusiasm is catchy.  Marion uses it extensively in much of her beautiful  work. The fact that she’s written a whole book about it, leads me to believe this is a great product. She has stirred my curiosity. I thought it might interest you as well.

Marion’s book’s is entitled ” Lovely Lutradur” by Marion Barnett & Dijanne Cevaal. In her book she explains what it is, its properties &  it’s application. She has included projects and a gallery, which give examples of what this product can add to your work.

If  you are already familiar with Lutradur  [hence providing me an example of the value of  thorough research, driving home this lesson,” to avoid embarrassment, check the facts thoroughly” ].  share your experience with us please.

I’m dying to try it in myself. I’ll update you on my results. In the meantime, check  out the interview I did with Marion back in November http://asianartandquilts.com/2012/11/06/textile-art-that-doesnt-follow-the-rules-meet-artist-marion-barnett/

In her creative approach she has indeed marched to the beat of her own drummer and the results are stunning.  The name she has given to one of her out standing quilts, ” Unbridled Passion” is a good description of her quilts as a whole.

Her approach to her work is passionate.  It is alive with color. The design and composition are bold  &  strong. You are going to find it difficult to pull your attention away.   You will not walk away and forget one of her works, they are memorable and unique
