Hand knit leather, oxidized sterling silver
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.
Swanson knits a leather laden masterpiece to comfortably wear around the neck. Its soft, smooth surfaces are palpable to the touch as they are an array of delight to behold. Beginning in the gentle hue of phthalo blue to the rustic tones of umber, Swanson evolves her exquisite, knitted lattice to join hands with darkened tones of black, navy blue and brown. Carrying her composition to a quieter terrain, she deepens its planes with brown and bronze as she gracefully matures her stitched progression. On the surface, she skillfully adheres silver discs to her work. Fluidly the lustrous school flows across the side of the work to coalesce towards its core. Paired with intriguing dimension and astounding design, the necklace is a striking fit for the body. Resting peacefully upon the collar, Swanson illustrates a dynamic and abstract beauty to behold and ever a treasure to wear in its unparalleled magnificence.
