Showing in Open Houses - Resident Artist
Crochet has been my passion since I was a child and it has always accompanied me although I never expected to do it for a living. Searching and searching I discovered a recycled material, T-shirt Yarn, by chance. A world of possibilities came to me. It is a truly an eco friendly product from no longer wanted T-shirts and surplus factory production. Nothing is taken from the environment to make the yarn.
Using geometry and natural shapes as inspiration I set out to create original crochet basket and rug designs. I think, sketch, make and unmake many times until the design is like the one I have in mind.
The possibilities for using this slightly elastic, eco friendly material are unlimited.
