Three-dimensional views

Jurors: Joan Hutton and Christine Spangler

Statement:

The theme, Three-Dimensional Views, inspired objects from the whimsical to the elegant. Of the pieces selected for special mention, the jurorswere impressed by the extraordinary craftsmanship and elegant forms of Joy's baskets, the inventive felt flower pins of Tarkhan, and the panoramic variety of motifs on Miller's wrap. The guest juror, Spangler, especially noted the fresh design impact of the natural prints on scarves, cards and other wearables (Bohlen and Stevens' work). There is a lot of choice for spring visitors to our gallery.

Recognitions:

Katia Tarkhan, group of four flower pins, merino/silk, hand-dyed, felted; $50 each

Elise Miller, Wrap, merino and wool, sari lining, silk fabric accents; $295

Emma Bednar I apply macramé and crochet techniques to wire and silk cords to create jewelry. Lately I have been designing dichro-glass fused beads to enhance my work.

Gayle Roehm I discovered knitting as stress relief during my first career as a management consultant. I have fun with shapes and techniques, and I enjoy creating things that don't usually appear in knitting, like my Fabergé egg (which appeared in the book Astounding Knits by Lela Nargi). I speak and read Japanese and have been knitting from Japanese patterns for many years. I regularly teach the topic at knitting events around the country.
