Made in Europe II - Gisha Wogier

Gisha Wogier
Israel
Bridge
Detail

Bridges are a connection and link. They are pathways between people and places. A bridge joins and unites. It represents progress, stability, hope and transition. I love the old steel bridges that you can see in Israel and in Europe. I admire the ability of professionals to build massive structures of steel, bolts and nuts, that bridge over rivers, valleys and roads. The quilt colors are inspired by the color of the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle where we visited

Made in Europe II - Tiziana Tateo

Italy
In Fashion Mood

Detail
Lace, shoes and textile are amongst the most important Italian traditions that date back to the earliest ages.

Lace is the fabric of national pride and its appeal led me to give it a contemporary look using a non conventional material as sizoflor that I painted, manipulated by heat and free machine embroidered.
The shoe, made with recycled golden leather, is an homage to my city Vigevano, which was internationally known as the shoe capital of Italy and whose "Shoe Museum" is entirely dedicated to the history of shoe making, techniques and models through the centuries.

In my country lace, textile and shoes have always been an important part of our  cultural life and society and have made Italian fashion famous all over the world.

My art quilt is the celebration of the Italian culture, which has an high consideration of fashion that in Italy is everywhere.
