Creation through mediation is a principle I apply to my larger practice and that I've learned from a deep engagement in textile craft and design. Spinning, weaving and knitting are part of a life practice that serve as creative digest. Like all ancient crafts, their processes rely on mantra-like repetition of nuanced hand movements, muscle memory, and an intuitive connection to material. Through textile crafts I attain a distinct satisfaction derived purely from process flow. The pleasure of the physical product itself becomes secondary.

 I asked my friend Ian to come over and model some of my knit work.  Here he is an array of scarves, as well as my own personal sweater.

Scarf

I designed this scarf initially for myself, to help fend against the all-mighty Michigan Winter. They're 8 inches wide and 8 feet long, comfortably wrapping once, and also twice. I began to produce them, at first on commission, but now only as gifts. I'm proud that nearly all of my cold-country friends have their own custom scarf.   

 I asked my friend Ian to come over and model some of my knit work.  Here he is an array of scarves, as well as my own personal sweater.

Jumper

I designed the jumper as something comfortable to wear around the house. I chose a light breezy linen that has a bit of stretch. You put it on through the wide arm opening, allowing the entire garment to slip on and off in one movement.
