Embroidered Samplers


These embroidered samplers, chosen from the Museum's collection of more than one thousand samplers, represent work from the seventeenth through the nineteen century that was made in the United States, Mexico, Western Europe, and China. These works, often handcrafted by young girls, are arranged geographically.

Techniques: Cutting and Tearing


On view are examples of paper, fabric, ceramics, and metalwork that have been cut, ripped, or otherwise perforated. Cut-paper silhouettes, a pierced silver basket, a fabric with holes "burnt out" by an acid process, all illustrate this "subtractive" process.  This installation highlights objects from the Museum's permanent collection, and is part of the ongoing exhibition, The Cooper-Hewitt Collections: A Design Resource.

Jacquard Weave X-Change


After putting the textile into proper archival storage, I promptly forgot about it as I went about doing the rest of my work. That is, until I had the fortune to bump into a woman named Bethanne Knudson at a Brooklyn dinner party a few weeks ago.
