Brece Honeycutt’s series, b(RE)ce, is made from selected repurposed garments (shirts, sweaters, blazers, trousers & dresses) dyed naturally from plants gathered from the land around her studio in Western Massachusetts. On summer mornings, she collects morning glories, rose leaves and coreopsis, for example, and in the fall she harvests fallen leaves and barberry, and dries goldenrod and zinnias for winter use in her dyeing. The colors and patterns imprinted on her garments were once found on the forest floor or on the stalks of plants. Each b(RE)ce garment is a unique, naturally dyed work.
