Makiko Wakisaka

Thanks to Connecticut fiber artist, Morna Crites-Moore, for pointing me to the artwork of  Makiko Wakisaka.
This piece looks eerily similar to the nests made by Turkish Bees.

Exhibited in Asia Fiberart Exhibition, miniature,
Fukuoka, Japan, 2001


Chrysalis, detail

Cocoon, detail
I fondly recall seeing Cocoon at the 2007 Pfaff Embroidery Challenge in London, U.K.
Small world!
Thanks Morna!
