Sieve Amour

Sieve Amour is a mixed media sculpture featuring the spirits held within old canning sieves who’ve escaped from their sieve prison for a quick moment to embrace while the cook is on a cigarette break.  The textiles used are upholstery samples and leather which is cut-worked and supported by wire that is sewn by hand to the back of the piece.  The vintage sieves are from the 1930s.  The piece is attached to a platform that is upholstered with a burlap inspired drapery panel sample.  All textiles used were rescued from landfill and repurposed for this piece.
