Hand knit leather, Japanese fiber, oxidized sterling silver, 23K gold leaf
Captivated by the tactile, utilitarian qualities of the basket and other historically significant manifestations from the fiber arts, artist, Brooke Marks-Swanson seeks to interpret that purpose through her contemporary works of adornment.
With extraordinary skill and creative ability, Swanson casts a web of crafted ingenuity. By hand, she knits bronze leather to form a circular composition to gracefully fall from the ear. Within its lattice, sweet impressions of gray, Japanese fiber purveys her intricate work. Atop, sleek, elongated discs of darkened silver are brushed by the majesty of lustrous gold leaf and bear the crown of the piece. A joust between two forms in space, Swanson's piece effectively illustrates a balletic balance in shape, volume and surface. On further glance, the piece's textured composition leave us gazing in awe. A dynamic work, made with deviceful design, fit for every soul-stirring engagement.
