Norman Sherfield | Knot This Way, Waxed Linen Fiber Sculptures
July 26th – 30th, 2010
I create small sculptures using a basketry technique known as knotting. It is a simple overhand knot which is knotted around a core of waxed linen threads. With variations of this simple knot, which is repeated over and over, I am able to create a variety of shapes, textures and color patterning.
