Fabric Covered Rope Coiled Baskets

 

I am inspired by colour and the love of textiles. Making these baskets is such an organic process as I’m never quite sure how each one will turn out. They are the same but different! It’s this variety that keeps me coming back for more to see what else I can create using this medium of rope and fabric. It allows me a very creative outlet that is very satisfying!

Felted Birds and Animals

I enjoy pushing the boundaries of felt's sculptural possibilities. I create fantastical birds and animals which are formed from raw wool. Many of them have whimsical additions such as flowers, revealed beads, and elaborate tails. the bodies are sculpted with felting needles, which compress and tangle the fibers so that the wool can be needled into forms.

Framed Wool and Alpaca Art

The textures colours and smells of natural unspun wool attracted me to needle felting in 2010. Sculpting animals led to experimenting on a flat (felt fabric) surface. Creating pieces that were both flat and sculptured allowed the work to reach out to the viewer. It is very satisfying to take raw wool and bring it to life.

Tzigane Caddell is a fibre artist who lives in Rothsay, NS. Indigo has become a consuming passion and is now the central focus of Tzindigo - her small fibre-dying enterprise.

She works with natural indigo extract in organic vats that use plants, fruit sugars, or iron as reducing agents and greates patterns on the fibres by applying shibori resists - such as stitching, tying and clamping - before dipping them, several times in the indigo vat.
