Northern Lights jacket fullbody

The Legend

NORTHERN LIGHTS

Aurora Borealis lights up the northern skies in an a amazing display of heavenly lights, shimmering apparitions of greens and pinks shot through with reds, golds and violets. Science of modern times has explained the phenomenon as “collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere”, but ancient legends infused the celestial fireworks with tales of animal spirits, ancestors and giants, and harbingers of war. Whatever the spin, the result continues to take our collective breath away! So wrap yourself in the Northern Lights, in the shimmer and sparkle of lustrous cosmic rainbow textile, and the brilliance of Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana’s creation of sumptuous ribbon work. Jewelry designer Ronda Terry’ kiln-fired dichroic glass button adds to the allure with a jewel-like twinkle.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star . . .

Susan Hollingsworth

Susan Hollingsworth has always had a knack for storytelling. Her years spent living in countries from Europe to Asia introduced her to the ancient practice of fiber art and the techniques that women used to create visual stories – with thread and fabric – passed down to them from their ancestors. During a stint in London, she studied pattern making from the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, which became the catalyst for SuKaz jackets. Rather than pen and paper, Susan designs wearable pieces of art, each one telling a unique story through the hands of skilled artisans from cultures around the globe.

The Art

Northern Lights jacket panel collage

Suneetha/Bhavaana

The Sukaz Art Panels of India include a wealth of textile art techniques evoking a brilliance of color and the depths of mystery in the Indian culture. In collaboration with Sukaz, stories are spun to vivid life by the skillful artistry of Suneetha/Bhaavana’s applique, silk origami, and needlefelt and further enhanced with touches of beading, applique, and braiding.

Ronda Terry

Multi- talented jewelry artist Ronda Terry works magic in her Michigan studio, conjuring delicacy and beauty from bits of rough metal, raw gemstones, and broken glass. Each of her exquisite creations is forged using caustic chemicals, 1500 degree heat, and a master’s hand. Ronda fashions a range of jewelry, dichroic glass tile, and buttons using techniques of kiln firing, enameling, casting and etching. And each brings its own brand of magic to a Sukaz jacket.
