I have been inspired to begin fiber sculpture again after a long long interval.
I first learned to crochet from my high school art teacher. He had just come back from a summer art studio and had learned free form crochet. It was very freeing to have learned to crochet free form objects rather than being held to the restrictions of a pattern for mittens or a scarf. Later I learned to do those as well, but I have always felt I could crochet a house with the right materials.
It feels good to be back in 3-D again after so many years of flat weaving, which has it's own challenges.
