Etude II - Brilliant Blue is a part of my Etude Series inspired the short unnamed studies of music I have been practicing lately on my keyboard. Lilting little scores, some long, some short, all bright spots as I improve a bit each day. All the pieces in the Etude Series have a core of steel (approx 1.3mm thick) with copper wire lace-inspired crochet stitched accents. The final finish of powder coating is chosen by me to provide a bright spot for your unusual spaces. Each Etude is unique, no two are alike other than using the same color finish for more than one piece. The powder coating is shiny, it sparkles in the sunshine, is weather resistant, and is easy to keep clean.

I’m a metal and textile artist, who takes a single metal thread and creates meticulously stitched, hand-crocheted sculptures. Stitches are connections, building relationships and memories. Most recently from Hawai’i and currently living in Japan, I am fascinated with juxtapositions and transformations in our ever changing world. Manipulating copper wire with textile techniques, I create artworks that combine the hard, masculine properties of metals with soft, feminine textile techniques. Stitching these two elements together transforms each piece into a stronger, more cohesive sculpture. Whether it is bare copper, anodized copper with color, or a copper core wrapped in gold, I love how the simplicity of a single hook and copper wire threads become a voluminous, organic installation in my hands. Hand-crocheting is a meditative action for me. The smooth copper wire glides through my fingers and over my crochet hook. Like the ensō, its single meditative loop represents a single moment of open creation, each crochet stitch I make is created from a varying number of loops. Each completed loop is the copper thread telling the story in sculptural form. My work process is interdisciplinary. I often take photographs of my fiber and wire textile pieces to see the work from another vantage point. Photographing my work also allows me to play with creating two-dimensional artworks while enjoying the physicality of creating three-dimensional sculptural forms. The rich tropical waters around my home state of Hawai’i continue to inspire my favorite color gradations; the deep turquoise blues to sea foam greens to the silver sparkles of water splashing my toes in the sand. My works are tactile in the same way I enjoy the beach. The wire flows through my hands inspiring me to take the conflicting materials and techniques and build balanced artworks.
