During lockdown I have listened to my inner self while I sit and stitch and I have also followed Ruth Asawas’ technique, of working underneath the structure. I have been registering how my tension on the yarn can cause the rope to form different shapes. I have developed this practice and the forms have become less vessel shape and more spherical as the importance of time is lost. The method of interconnecting rope previously coiled and stitched creates moments of convexity and cavities. Understanding the inside and outside space is a traditional element within sculpture. Documenting the work as it progresses is a method of capturing the dynamics of these spaces.
