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.
As if precious medallions washed to shore; its subject cast in a intricate lattice, keeping safe from the storm. Here, Swanson knits dark, navy leather strands to seal her piece in an appealing web of design. Beneath, gold leaf hearkens our attention with its lustrous surfaces, glowing in contrast to its deep-toned, knitted counterpart. Darkened silver emerges from its golden frame. Her multi-faceted work astounds us as one observes the striking form sway in space. To touch, her leather festoon is soft to behold. On the ear, delightfully held in near weightless regard. Quite a piece for your every soul-stirring engagement.
