Shibori Dyeing

Michael Smith

Michael Smith lives in Asheville, NC and has been making wearable fiber art for over 25 years. He has worked under the names of Three Wishes, Chaos, and Mystic Eye. Each piece is sewn and dyed one at a time in North Carolina. Michael's silk shibori clothing is machine washable and lightweight.

 Michael uses a non-traditional technique to make his Shibori art. His work is more retail because he sells the clothing through Etsy. I picked this artist because there were a lot more websites that he was mentioned in so he seemed a little more well known than other Shibori artists. Michael's work caught my eye because the colors and patterns he chooses are so vibrant and they really pop.
