3 Piece Suite – Jill Burgess’s Work


“Japanese culture, history and expression form the central theme of this 3 Piece Suite.  It represents the diversity of ancient Japanese values in dress, design and artistic interpretation.

In the piece “Kayoko”, depicting a lady in traditional dress the book has been crafted with Japanese paper and the hair on the figure has been carefully hand pieced.  Japanese made embroidered silk has been used in crafting the lady’s garments.
