Sometimes I'm A Tiger Jacket Front

The Legend

SOMETIMES I’M A TIGER

The Bengal tiger is the national animal of India, revered for its beauty, grace and independent spirit. Mythical lore holds that a “weretiger” transforms into a human being, just as a werewolf morphs between human and wolf. A tiger by night, in the morning light a … Master Gardener? This weretiger’s human character is revealed in a glimpse beneath its striped facade in Indian Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana’s creation in silk. Using multiple techniques of mirror work, ribbon embroidery, appliqué and silk embroidery, she paints a riotous palette of flowers and butterflies, a spectacular display for the stately garden. Jewelry artist Ronda Terry’s kiln-fired dichroic glass button adds a sparkle of allure.

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.

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.
