Featured Artist: Stephanie Hassler

During the seven weeks of 'Daily Fiber Intake' we'll focus on individual artists here on our blog. Every week, several artists will be featured. Today, we're pleased to introduce to you: Stephanie Hassler.

"For A Good Time Call..."

I am a designer and artist living in Berks County, PA.  This coming fall, I will be attending Misericorida University to pursue my master’s degree in occupational therapy.

"For A Good Time Call..." Detail 1

"For A Good Time Call..." Detail 2

In “For a good time call…”, I wanted to exploit the mundane and draw special attention to the layering of patterns and textures.  The first layer consists of fabric with imagery transferred from a local phone book.  Next, I plaited the strips to add a twill pattern.  Finally, the embroidery on the surface ties everything together and adds another dimension to the entire piece.  To best view this piece, look at it both up close and from afar to see each layer and how they affect each other.
