CIRCLE Wall Sculptures

While working on the crocheted portion of the large scale Opuntia Double project, Cooper also began making pieces small enough to fit in her lap. These offer a way to try out a quicker project while still working with the same processes and materials. Their scale also suggests a different intimacy, a kind of nestling.

These wall pieces are made from collected plant debris – dried cactus/Opuntia, dried roots, seedpods, etc, that have been crocheted through and around with silk, wool, fine strands of stainless steel, and mohair, creating new forms which are extensions of the organic objects.
