Coiled abstract open bowl–for wall or table
1 in stock
Pacifica is an open coiled bowl designed to hang on the wall, but it can also be placed on a table. Inspired by the beautiful variegated viscose yarn which I used throughout the piece, its abstract design was also inspired by days at the beach in Southern California. As a desert dweller, the ocean seems like a foreign landscape and always fascinates me! Pacifica is coiled using a closed figure-8 stitch on a jute core. The yarns are cotton and viscose. The variegated viscose yarn was bundled with different shades of mercerized and unmercerized weaving cotton—a signature element of my work. A hanger is woven into the back of the piece for hanging using a simple picture hanger. This hanger is unobtrusive if you wish to place the piece on table.

Welcome to my Artizan Made Market Shop! Have fun exploring the world of color with me through my work! I create unique, abstract coiled and sculptural vessels inspired by music and the natural world. Each of my pieces is an experimental exploration of the interactions of color and the melodies and counterpoint of different design elements. Working in the fiber medium brings unique challenges as I adapt the design of a piece to the continually curving surface of the vessel’s form and the effects of light reflected from different yarns and fibers creates an additional dimension to each piece, which changes as the light source changes. Blending colors is a hallmark of my work, not just in the designs of my pieces but within the color areas of each piece. I often use variegated knitting yarns in my pieces which I find are endlessly inspirational. If you don't see something you'd like from my current inventory, I would be happy to discuss creating a unique and original piece just for you.
