“Alpenglow” in Thread

la-than-237.jpgIn a revival of an historic Vietnamese craft tradition, an artisans’ project called La Than Imperial Embroidery has rendered one of my photographs, Alpenglow on Hurricane Ridge, in silk thread. The piece is 7 feet wide, took six needle workers over a year to execute, and utilizes hundreds of distinct thread dyes. It was on display recently as part of a two day La Than demonstration at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design.

Embroidery pieces based on works by two other photographers, Frans Lanting and Christopher Burkett, were also part of the event.
