Let´s start with the amazing Stitched Amazing Sculptures By Amanda McCavor. An Toronto based textile artist that uses various colorful threads and a sewing machine to construct sculptural installations that dance between two and three dimensions.

Modern sculptures made in many different colors, flowers, furniture and birds.
Her art installations poetically re-engage the viewer with their surroundings by transposing physical objects to a flattened thread “drawing” of sorts that lies somewhere between the tangible and the imagined Sculptures.
Coming from a background in drawing, Amanda has developed a unique fiber abstract art practice in which she uses a sewing machine to draw layers of thread, moving from light to dark, and giving the thread enough structure to hold together.
She is interested and excited by the potential thread has to create both readable images and abstract images.
The inspiration sometimes comes from personal photos or tracking down old roommates so I can take pictures of the furniture they took with them from our shared living spaces for pieces like the Living Room.
