This past summer, I got involved in recreating things that exist in the natural world, things like cobwebs, leaves, stones, and lichen. I made a few bird nests and a groundhog burrow, too. Each work was made with man-made materials, sometimes with plastic.
I submitted a few things to View Arts Center in Old Forge, New York, and I'm thrilled that two of my bird nests were accepted for exhibition. The show, titled Natural Homes: Nests, Burrows, Caves & Trees, runs through March 10, 2019.
Here are some detail views of my two bird nests:
I created these nests with a combination of crochet and weaving techniques. I really love working in a free form style - they were an absolute joy to make.
I had a chance to see the exhibition and I'll post photos of that visit soon.
Thank you for taking a look!
