Knots get their day in the sun
I wrote several posts last winter about my new art technique of tying a bazillion overhand knots in a piece of thread to build up large sculptural forms. My plan was to enter them in Fiberart International, but they were rejected. So they were open to be entered again, this time in the Transgressing Traditions show sponsored by Surface Design Association, and this time I had better luck.
Here's the one that got in. The knotted forms are emerging from wooden spools.
