Katchafire debut doesn't catch fire

The Cutting Edge:
HPU exhibits "Extreme Fiber"

“Extreme Fiber” is not necessarily an appropriate title for the Hawai‘i Handweavers’ Hui art exhibition currently on display at the HPU art gallery. This is because some of the handcrafted materials are actually wearable. One of the more striking pieces is a lightweight coat that dangles from the ceiling. Done by Helen Friend, the piece is titled Cut Your Coat According to the Cloth. The coat is constructed of netting, organza, and newsprint. Snippets of different phrases such as “Change Your View,” “Be Confident & Smile Again,” and “No Regrets” and several other positive words were neatly stitched into the coat with red and black zigzag stitching. The buttons of the coat were fashioned of bits of old credit cards. [More]
