Lures were initially created for the "Design Council of the Denver Art Museum's tenth annual incarnation of Design After Dark, an annual winter party and fundraiser benefiting the Department of Architecture, Design & Graphics at the Denver Art Museum".
The theme for 2014 was CAST, and I considered so many other projects before landing on this one. Once committed to the notion, returning to the familiar world of fabric sculpture was a pure delight. I worked from materials that I had on hand: mops, feathers, beads, glass eyes, jute rope, glitter, wood chips, colored pencil ends, scrap wood, chains, fur pieces, fabric studies, and so much more.
This project brought me so much joy and received Best in Show at the event. Yeah!
