Mudras Handmade Gestures by Taylor Elyse Compton
Mudras are traditionally defined as gestures of prayer or mediation. I define any serious and concentrated craft, as a mudra. My personal mudra is the art of knitting. It has lead me to create a collection of accessories based on Chicago’s weather and my longing for nature.
Each piece was imagined from the notion of a wonderer, lost in the crowded city, looking and longing for a quiet breath of fresh air. They became tokens that represented warmth and comfort to those who may need a moment of spirit.
