I wanted to make a tiny knife that was uniquely mine. I had combined textiles and knives on some of my previous work and I was curious to see if I could do the same on such a tiny scale.
The finished knife is a folding clip point slipjoint. The scales are stainless steel mesh, edged with silk thread embroidery. Cocoons have appeared in my work previously…I like the changing state of them, how they have the possibility to be something different.
