Topiary 2015

Unusual forms and combinations of opposites attract me. My current obsession is searching for odd topiary gracing the yards of mundane Postwar homes. I am struck by their setting, quirky gesture, the years of attention and patience, when it comes to their grooming. Dialoging with owners results in a merging of unlikely makers. My quiet and decisive act of forming a knit and purl stitch in leather speaks to my fascination and shared exchange.
