Kay Sekimachi (b. 1926) is a fiber artist and weaver. Known as a “weaver’s weaver,” Sekimachi uses the loom to construct three-dimensional sculptural pieces. She attended the California College of Arts, where she studied with Trude Guermonprez, and at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, where she studied with Jack Lenor Larsen.
Her work can found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Renwick Gallery, the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She is recognized as a pioneer in the resurrection of fiber and weaving as a legitimate means of artistic expression.
