Embellishments & Techniques: I dyed the bra then needle felted the cups and side pieces. The bird was needle felted and appliquéd. The yarn was hand sewn in place. The frame is a foam core board covered with wet felted created fabric.
Artist’s Statement: While I worked on the braziere, I thought of my friends who have lost the battle and also those who are confronting it. The bird in flight is carrying a message of hope for a cure. I hope this endeavor can raise awareness and lead us to a cure.
