East-coast fiber artist Diane Savona uses her artworks as a means of historic preservation. Containing found objects from her equivalent of archeological digs—garage and estate sales—her work transforms everyday household objects into fiber-covered silhouettes. Savona shares stories from past generations in her exhibition consisting of artworks from many of her collections. Several motifs are centered around the tools of varying fiber practices including pincushions, sewing scissors, crochet hooks and more. Through her work, Savona seeks to alter the perceptions of the textile legacy.
