Crochet Samples came about as a tribute to my grandmothers, and as a way to process their deaths. Ironically, I became more interested in crochet when they were too old to answer my technical questions. If it takes a village of grandmothers, I was lucky to borrow a friend’s when she came to visit. Crochet Samples is a variation on a theme. Each site-specific installation is built from the many layers of individual pieces, enjoying the formal play between size, shape, pattern, color, and material.
