What to do with all that thread...
I'd never heard of Devorah Sperber before I stumbled onto a photo of her work recently. But I'm enthralled. She makes amazing art pieces, separating images into individual pixels of color and then assembling the images with a spool of thread for each pixel.
Want to see the Mona Lisa done in thread? Take a look here.
She's made works using a similar process but with marker covers, vinyl flowers, and map tacks.
For quilters who assemble images from bits of fabric, this art is intriguing and a very thought-provoking "next step."
And it makes most of our thread collections look pretty puny, too.
