Miyuki Sakai is a Osaka-born artist. “While in art school in Kyoto, Japan, I was challenged to find an unique way to express myself. Inspiration struck when I saw my mother’s sewing machine at home. I thought it could be a good idea to use it to draw pictures. My mother was a professional dressmaker and I grew up watching her sew. I didn’t know how to sew (still don’t) but I knew how to use a sewing machine.” – says the artist.
“Since then, my interest has been to give still lives a new fresh look. I sketch my design with pen, trace them onto fabric, then start stitching – starting with the lighter colors, then the darker and outlines in the end— using a straight-stitch-only sewing machine.”
Artist called Hipota is the creator of these amazing crochet sculptures.
