Still looking for a little info on Katy Usvitsky after spotting her in an exhibition (blogged below) but here are some images I have found so far......
Now here is an exhibition that I wish I could have gone to see!! Check these beauties out!
Curated by Lovina Purple, the show examines artwork that has been created in traditional craft techniques such as weaving, quilting, lace-making, knitting and embroidery. The exhibition features works by artists Elisa D’Arrigo, Karen Margolis, Christina Massey, Hyo Jeong Nam, Gail Rothschild, and Katya Usvitsky.

"I make exquisite cups and other objects for a bizarre tea ceremony. They suggest the everyday, the ordinary, but are in fact extra-ordinary .
They are the vehicle to make visible an invisible, microscopic world.
A world of intricacy and detail, of mathematical pattern and organic chaos, of beauty and repulsion."
Ikuko Iwamoto ceramic sculptures.... these are just the tip of the iceberg!!!! LOOK LOOK LOOK! LOOK NOW!!
