Gwen chose this red rope. She had mentioned she teaches classes in free-form crochet. Look what happened!
6/30/2013 Visit by Gwen, the Crochet Queen!
Here's Gwen Blakley Kinsler, the Crochet Queen! She stopped by DEFIBRILLATOR to see my work and show me her new book: The Fine Art of Crochet: Innovative Works from 20 Contemporary Artists. Gwen has written about 20 artists that use the medium of crochet. I am chapter 4...or 5?
Weave has carried over to my studio! Here is a piece I completed today. The big ball of yarn is cotton welting. The sculpture can be seen in the window of the Greenleaf Art Center - 1806 Greenleaf, Chicago, Illinois.
Friday night specials...
Thanks to Gina from Switzerland who picked out this material for me to work with. Surprisingly it was very easy to work with and got my mind thinking about similar materials!
A flat weeper hose!

Here is Amanda of Redskew (check out her blog below). She describes herself as a “maker!” She
happened to be walking by the gallery and noticed what I was doing. She passed
by but then found the courage to come back and talk to me. It was great because she spent a good
part of the afternoon with me. Amanda picked out a black vinyl trim for me. The
piece started out very “basket-like” then exploded into something wild – it seemed
very Fellini! Thanks to Amanda for the inspiration and inspiring conversation.
