Relief of Rain
Coiled abstract sculptural vessel
1 in stock
Relief of Rain is an oval abstract coiled vessel. Its title has two meanings: the relief we all feel living the desert when the rains come and the beautiful sculpting effect of water on sandstone cliffs and outcroppings in the Southwest. The variegated wool yarn in the upper part of the piece reminded me of the intensified colors in wet sandstone and rock. This piece was coiled using a closed figure-8 stitch and mercerized and unmercerized cotton yarns. Free Shipping within the USA!

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.
