SEPTEMBER

Posted on January 31st, 2013 by Melanie Fischer

I had started an “abstract painting” as an example of my idea for the Cohens.  This month I had a moment to finish it.  This is how it turned out.

For my wonderful and powerful sister-in-law’s big 25th birthday I gave her this print I had taken of her.  Her robe I sewed out of hand-i-wipes and I made her Power belt.

JULY/AUGUST 2012

Posted on January 31st, 2013 by Melanie Fischer

I created an installation for the home of Amy and Michael Cohen in Philadelphia.  It was really fun and challenging to create something that I was inspired to do after touring their lovely home.  I ended up creating what I think of as a three dimensional abstract painting.  I have incorporated pieces of fabric from the Cohens’ live which I have embroidered.  The fabric is protruding at different distances from the wall on thin pins.

GayMitzvah

Posted on January 31st, 2013 by Melanie Fischer

We attended a gay-mitzvah for Andrew Mitchell  – a riotous event with pink kippahs, talit, boas, and sequence. 

I figured anyone going through this right of Jewish adulthood needed to receive the obligatory pen – so I sewed one for him.  On the top of the box I embroidered a gold Jewish star.  If anyone needs the perfect gaymitzvah present .  . .
