IKAT: The Essential Handbook to Weaving Resist-Dyed Cloth
Mary Zicafoose, IKAT
Mary Zicafoose's tapestries and rugs span the globe from the corporate offices of Tenaska in Canada to the United States Embassies on three continents. Her woven pieces blend cultural icons and symbols with a contemporary hand, creating powerful visual statements in fiber. The work and processes are a reflection of the artists' superb craftsmanship and her ability to speak articulately through the use of color.
