SUPERNOVA, NEBULA & FUZZY by LARA KNUTSON
‘What I love is that the fabric and beads are always responding to the viewer in different ways. For a moment, the piece might look grey, then suddenly as the viewer moves a few inches, light flashes from the fabric or thebeads cast yellow and orange light.’
Supernova is made with reflective glass fabric, silk thread, and rock crystal.
Comprised of microscopic glass beads, Nebula’s soft reflective fabric glows when light is behind your head. Like a cloud of stardust, it is ephemeral with flashes of luminescence.
Fuzzy is made from mohair, reflective fabric and industrial-grade diamonds.
