Michelle Griffiths is a professional artist based in South Wales. Her work explores the natural rhythm of traditional shibori techniques in order to create contemporary three dimensional sculptures. Working predominantly in whites and creams, Michelle records the actions found within shibori: stitching, binding, gathering, manipulating and folding – not through the expected dye process but purely as texture and form. Michelle’s work is on permanent exhibition in her gallery/studio at Model House Craft & Design Centre.
