Volcanoes, earthquakes, sinkholes, unseasonably beautiful days- Mother Earth is always hard to predict. My work was inspired by all of the unpredictable natural occurrences. I used, what is for me, an unpredictable technique: Freeform Tunisian Lace. Tunisian crochet is inherently linear and trying to coerce it into a freeform state gave me some interesting and unpredictable results. Attempting to turn my work into a jacket had its own unpredictable moments.
