Geometric Abstractions in Crocheted Fiberglass

Wall-based geometric abstractions. Created by crocheting continuous strands of fiberglass into flat geometric shapes that are formed and hardened with the application of polyester resin and use of gravity.  Small finished units are sewn together with the fiberglass into medium sized blocks which may assemble to form a larger unit or grid structure. This work engages math as a structural foundation by utilizing the grid, the numbers pi and e, and Pascal’s triangle.
