Supporting Oklahoma’s contemporary craft artists by connecting them to audiences and opportunities through education, recognition and exhibition programs.
The piece I’m working on now is composed of what I’m calling soft tessera (it’s not accurate because tessera are hard pieces) because I’m creating a mosaic with the hundreds of colored rock shaped felt pieces I created over a number of weeks. I then cut and folded the edges of a piece of wire screen to form a left-handed check mark which measures 66 inches on the long side and 41 inches on the short side. I’ve tied waxed linen around each creating a sort of abstract line language.
The waxed linen is also used to attached the individual pieces to the screen. It’s a slow process and the screen has been very hard on my hands and arms.
