I need some handwork to carry along on a trip to meet my new husband's family.  It might be a good time to experiment with macramé in wire.

Love it!

Fabulous show with a wonderful range of work! I love the interactions between connections/substructures/encasings. So nice to see so much successful cross-pollination of supposedly disparate materials and techniques.
I use fiber techniques on wire and then shrink flax paper over the armatures.
Keep up the great work! Jessica

For those of you working with felt, this call for LARK Book of the 500 series might be interesting:

500 Felt Objects
Juror: Susan Brown
Entry deadline: February 13, 2010


Lark Books seeks images from artists/designers across the globe for publication in a juried collection showcasing felt objects. Categories in the book will include Garments, Jewelry, Furniture, Bags, Art Pieces, Headwear, Functional Items/Home Décor, Floor and Wall Coverings, and more. Felt must be the focus of all work, but other materials are allowed. While Lark usually features hand-made work, for this book, innovative designs in industrial felt are acceptable

Lovely curating, Thea... thanks so much for introducing me to some new artists, and putting a few with whom I was familiar into a new context.

Terrific body of work. Extraordinary breadth of imagination and execution. Thanks for putting this together Thea.
