Cultivating Accretion Art

Posted on: Monday, April 09, 2007

Some recent experiments in the studio include ideas related to 'processes of accretion'. Accretion is sustained growth or an increase of things by gradual additions. Coral reefs, geological sediment, gravitational disks ala astrophysics, and cacti grafting - all follow this general method and principle.

Free form crochet is also an ideal way of expressing the incremental additions of fiber, lace swatches, and wound thread. A galaxy of form building can be created via the cultivation of an unexpected loop, wild knot, or fabric fold.
