Seeking a new language, I headed to Yaddo, an artist colony in Saratoga Springs, with an armful of metal mesh. There are many different kinds of metal mesh material such as copper, stainless steel, bras and aluminum. Ultimately I was drawn to aluminum mesh because its versatility and lightness reminded me of silk organza. I also incorporated the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth, furoshiki, used to giving gifts. What is inside? One can only guess.
