Men I have Known

“Men I Have Known” is a series of 10 handwoven sculptures.  Each three dimensional tapestry represents a different lover.  The name of each lover is written by my hand on the wall below each printed title, in red pen.

“I have sculpted this fabric into phalluses that represent my sexual experiences: “One Night In Vegas”, “Sigma Chi”, “The Bad Boy”, hanging my trophies on the wall.”

Juliet is certified in and practices SAORI weaving, a Japanese form of textile design.  SAORI is the zen art of handweaving that is dedicated to free expression and self development. She has displayed her award-winning fiber art in New York and the New York region.

Juliet applies her skills and techniques in weaving, painting, ceramics, and printmaking to fiber art, from sculptures to tapestries to mixed-media jewelry design.  Her work brings together the sensuality of painting and printmaking with the textural explicitness of weaving and ceramics.
