Kay Sekimachi on Peter Collingwood & Cynthia Schira
Fiber artist Kay Sekimachi on weaver Peter Collingwood and textile artist Cynthia Schira. Bonus video from the VISIONARIES episode. PBS premiere December 21, 2018.
Kay Sekimachi is a fiber artist and weaver, known as a “weaver’s weaver” for her unusual use of the loom in constructing three-dimensional sculptural pieces. In the early 1970s she used nylon monofilament to create hanging quadruple tubular woven forms in an exploration of space, transparency, and movement. Sekimachi’s primary sources of inspiration are the shapes, forms and natural colors gleaned from her Japanese heritage.
