A long-held interest is the idea of fabrication – making my own materials. Kumihimo braiding is quite fascinating and has kept me busy over winter.
I love the thought of working with these patterned braids in a sculptural way—using them as lines, braiding (ha! new word – metabraid), knitting, weaving. And I also love that I can use any type of thread—cotton, wool, silk, wire—the list is endless, as is the potential for patterning.
BTW this is Day 999/2 💙
