Four Vases - One island of three attached vases and another vase set aside the island of three. Four Vases is a show of forms that cannot complete the task from which inspired them. Bringing the beautiful shape of the vase itself firmly into focus with Four Vases shows that flowers are not required to enjoy this work. Meticulously hand crocheted vases are each stitched in black anodized copper wire with the top third of each completed with a dark green anodized copper wire. The base of each vase is hand crocheted black cotton thread for a soft surface for Four Vases to stand. Size of island of (3) vases: 14.5” x 7” x 4” Size of single vase: 14.5” x 3” x 3” NOTE: They are sturdy enough to hold themselves up but not the additional weight of flowers.

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.
