Ritual VS Ordinary
Home    Info    Ask
About: My name is Kaly Scheller-Barrett and I am a fiber artist originally from Germany, now living and working in western Massachusetts. I recently received my BFA in Fibers (3D) from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. My work aims to explore the connection between ritual and ordinary objects and my practice is focused mainly on the function and life cycle of ritual cloth, as well as the figure/ground-ground/figure relationship between people and textiles.
