Copper Fox Design.


My journey to Indigo began 5 years ago while exploring textile surface design. I have always been drawn to textile work, even while pursuing a 20 year career in clay. I find the tending of the Indigo vat is similar in many ways to the reduction firing of clay, and similar too, in it's unpredictable nature. I am captivated by the mystery of Indigo and intrigued by the techniques of Shibori, Japanese resist by stitching, folding, and manipulation of the cloth before dyeing. I look forward to my days tending the vat, and the continual challenges and surprises it produces.


Manipulating and exploring textiles and dyeing lead me on a journey. An intuitive maker, I explore my connection to the materials, as layer by layer, the story is revealed. I recently completed a Fiber Arts Intensive at Haliburton School of the Arts, and the experience has produced some provocative and mysterious pieces.
