As someone who willingly spends her days under a mountain of fabric, lace and thread; it probably goes without saying that I love textiles. I especially love when people take those seemingly crafty ingredients and turns them into beautiful works of art. Here's a few of my favorites:
Ana Teresa Barboza takes embroidery and knitting to the next level.
Janet Echelman makes amazing textile sculptures that float over cityscapes worldwide.

How about an aquarium of jellyfish? I love the Meet the jelly's page on Sayuri's website
Mister Finch creates a whole fairy tale world out of fabrics.
I couldn't care less about cars, but an embroidered car might make me change my mind.
Do you have any favorite textile artists that I need to know about?
