Fabric Heart (photo credit: Dina Rossi)This piece was created out of fabric that I wove using stainless steel/silk yarn.  This was also my first experiment in constructing a figurative sculpture out of fabric.  This involved drafting and refining a flat pattern that once constructed would mimic a 3-dimentional human heart.  Using the stainless steel/silk yarn, that has a physical memory, made it possible to leave the resulting heart hollow rather than stuffing it with filler.
