Hollow Form with Hyperbolic Pseudosphere
H: 3.5"" | W: 3.75"" | D: 3.75""

Knotless netting, hyperbolic crochet. Copper, sterling and fine silver wires. Examples of hyperbolic forms are coral, kale, sea slugs and holly. I enclosed the form in a netted vessel shape, inviting the viewer to look closely. The open top allows a view into the heart of the piece.

As a metal textile artist, I use knotless netting, crochet, twining and needle tatting to create vessels that are also containers for my ideas. I think about beauty, about interiors and exteriors, edges and boundaries. And the gifts of wire: transparency and reflection of light.
