Appliqué Artistry

  • (415) 453-6762
Almost a lost art, Appliqué is one of the oldest known art forms, dating back as far as 3,000 B.C. Inspired by the aesthetic of Old World artisan guilds, Wende Craggs' collection is rich in textural detail and reflects an appreciation for timeless interpretation of historic design. Art Nouveau, Deco and Arts and Crafts as well as Traditional motifs are incorporated into meticulously executed wall panels, pillows and table runners in a color palette that tends to ward opulent jewel tones, > MORE burnished metals and natures realm. A self taught textile artist, she has exhibited nationally for more than 35 years. She has been featured in numerous publications and won dozens of awards. Her pieces are installed in residences from Italy to Hawaii and were included in last years SF Decorator Showcase. She works closely with designers and clients to create highly personal artistic statements in natural fibers. Commissions gladly accepted. This neglected medium has unlimited possibilities. It is somewhat like marguetry or stained glass in Italy. The layout can be manipulated to achieve shadings and depth by angling the silk, turning at a 45 degree angle. This creates a very subtle variation of the same color used, which she did for “Platinum Blonde”.^ LESS
