An interesting feature and interview with 3 textile artists - Elis Vermeulen. Visual artist., Andrea Graham and me, Vilte Kazlauskaite - on authentic creativity and ethics, published in Australian magazine "Felt" ArtWear Publications, issue 12, 2014. Thoughts spinning around creative identity, true self, balance, ethics, etc. And one of my most favorite quotes from this article is the answer of Elis on a question of stimulation of revealing one's true self:
"Stimulation is not a word I would use myself, I would rather say there is no other way. I do not see the reason to reveal someone else's thoughts as if they were mine. Same as I only want to live my life and not someone else's I guess".

Every love and wedding story is different in its own beautiful way. And I am happy to meet people who want their stories “written” in unique handmade natural ways with nuno felt dresses and jackets. It is always unique.

Australian Felt magazine publishing my article on Authentic Creativity and Ethics http://artwearpublications.com.au/subscriptions/felt-magazine.html(by ArtWear Publications)
With the editor's note by Wendy Bailye:
"We have a special article by Vilte on ethics and authenticity - a very timely topic. With the growth of the internet and with so many images of precious work being published, there are ever increasing concerns about people copying other peoples work and denying their own creative selves. Vilte presents us with some interesting research and questions".
Photography in the article is by me and SVETLANA BATURA* fotografija. And thank you to our beautiful models - Beata Molyte and Helman Lik.
This article is the first part - a theoretical, psychological, research approach to the matter. The second part of the article will be published in December issue with interviews with some of very well known textile artists, as well as my personal point of view.

The idea of the photographer was to create rustic and cozy image of the family members. For this I chose delicate silk, cotton muslin, wool, spun silk embroidery and natural dyeing and improvised eco printing of the garments. I used madder, cochineal, alkanet, walnut and young alder collected from my yard.

“Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall and falling,
they're given wings.” (Rumi)
A dress comes when it's time for it to come. The dress with idea of circles came to my mind about 2 years ago when reading poetry by Rumi and imagining the whirling dervish. I just took a more feminine shape of the circle in my opinion.
