Kate is fascinated by adornment, and excess. She is inspired by the repetition of ordinary objects. Kate’s specific fascination with zippers comes from her general love of transforming ordinary materials into wearable objects of art. Because the metal teeth are attached to a fabric edge, the zipper is a material that is both rigid and flexible. She enjoys the contrast between the zipper’s harsh metal teeth and the fluid, whimsical shapes that she can create with it!
