"Four squares woven in the same design produces countless possibilities by changing the direction they are hung and their layout. While using the same materials and the same design, there are numerous possibilities that can be produced. Similarly, in life there are different choices of arrangement we make that lead us down different paths. Each path is a step in our own unique configuration of our personal work of art: the craft of human life."
During my experience as a Fiber Studio Assistant at Peters Valley, I made connections with artists, craftsmen, instructors, and fellow studio assistants that will forever be woven into my life. Peters Valley helped me to see the vast community of craft-centered people. People who care about the history, and practice of their craft. Peters Valley reminded me the craft and process behind the finished product is important and of great value. I believe Peters Valley helped me to renew my focus on the small details, and the practice of the craft in my projects which I believe helped me to get a job as a Textile Designer. My craft knowledge of the behaviors of fibers, spinning, dye-work, and weaving continues to help me as I aim to develop quality industrially produced textiles that pay homage to the craft that is behind them. I am practicing balance between the high demands and limitations of the textile industry while maintaining a personal journey with fibers and my craft processes at home.Abraham Buddish, Glenview, IL
Abraham’s fiber journey began when he was 8 years old and was given a bottle baby Angora goat. As the goat grew, so did his mohair, and Abraham became enamored by the fiber. Abraham soon learned how to spin and his fascination with fibers never ceased. He managed to learn how to knit, crochet, weave, felt and dye which led him deeper into the world of art and design. Abraham received wise counsel as a member of the Weavers Guild of Greater Kansas City; and aimed to share and promote the fiber arts through local school and 4-H events. Abraham expanded his study of textiles at the College for Creative Studies where he received a degree in Fiber and Textile Design in 2018. Abraham gained additional knowledge and skills through different internships and assistantships focusing on textiles. Brentano Fabrics hired Abraham in the fall of 2018 and promoted him to Textile Designer in 2019. Abraham balances his life between working in the textile industry and maintaining a craft practice at home. His artwork often explores the many qualities related to the human experience and aims to portray narratives involving the physical and spiritual being.
