Peacock Pride Jacket Front

The Legend

PEACOCK PRIDE

The peacock, native to India, is seen through multiple cultures worldwide as the guardian of royalty. Revered for the splendor of its brilliant plumage, the stately fowl is known in Hindu culture as the mount of Lord Kartikeya, the God of War; indeed, the spots on the end of its tail feathers are symbolic of the eyes of the gods. Indian Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana employs techniques of fabric sculpture, appliqué, stump work, embroidery and bead work in her portrayal of the peacock in a restful state. Showcased in folds of midnight jacquard, the scene is completed by jewelry artist Ronda Terry’s kiln-fired dichroic glass button.

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

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.
