Made with paper rush, the goal was to control the form and make a minimal clean piece. A biologist by day and working in a lab, it reminded me of the Erlenmeyer flasks that I often use, hence the name. I’ve gone on to make a beaker and am working on a woven graduated cylinder!

I enrolled in my first class, Sculptural Weaving, in 2017. It was not until the pandemic, however, that there was finally time to explore what I had learned and experiment with ideas. Digging out notes saved from class and enrolling in an on-line class helped to jumpstart my return to weaving. Biomorphic shapes and objects that reference natural forms resonate with me. I don’t have a specific idea at the beginning-the shape emerges as I work and when it starts to take on an organic shape, I go with it. Being new to this artform, there’s a lot of trial and error involved as well as pleasant surprises. The most awkward pieces are often my favorites.
