Funky Fresh AND a classic throwback, “Hang Arounds” astound and delight the senses. Barb Kubala’s fiber arts are tactile and visually exciting in jewelry, wearables and wall hangings. Kubala unites her fiber arts skills with bold constructions of soutache, sailor’s knots, crystals and feathers to make distinct wearable art. “A Kubala” as a gift will make your friend’s heart sing in playful delight.
Barb is a retiree of the Indiana Area School District and has been active in the community for many years. As a fiber artist, Barb has practiced many different forms of woven techniques, all of which are a stunning display of her talents.
Much of her work is done as pin weaving which gives her the flexibility to weave any shape that she draws. Her use of simple non-objective, organic shape is a constant in all of her work, whether it is a wall hanging, a necklace, or a jacket. She is pleased to say that every one of her works is completely unique and one of a kind.
