I finally got to meet Rie Suzuki earlier this month at Spiral’s Independent Creators Festival. Her gorgeous embroidery work has impressed me from the first time I saw it.
Using sheer fabrics in multiple layers, satins, ribbons, beads and smoothly wrapping the hoops all leads to a lovely floating world for her feminine characters to swim, float and dance. Anything that brings stitch work into the 3D world such as Rie’s Stitch Drawings really inspire me.
Her meticulous attention to detail has led her to dye the fabric she used for this piece to ensure the best color for her work.
Visit Rie’s Blog, or her website to see more of her inspiring work, including her unique stitch jewelry pieces. Don’t be shy, go say, ‘Hi!’ She is a lovely person who does speak English!
