This is the work of Brooklyn, NY's Ashka Dymel. I met her at BMAC & flipped over her work, but not her personality so much. She probably has a good one, but was reluctant to share it with me. And after I read her resume online, I understand why-she's a very accomplished & formidable artist! I'd die to claim the successes she's had! I love how meticulous & clean her metal work is. But it was too pricey for us. Plus she ignored us! So we didn't buy her stuff. But her work def deserves a pin!
Crochet Sea Ceatures by Arline Fisch - RAM commissioned internationally acclaimed jewelry artist Arline Fisch to create the new exhibition for its Windows on Fifth Gallery. Creatures from the Deep is a shimmering street-side aquarium of jellyfish sculptures. Fisch has rarely created anything but jewelry. Bringing her work to a grand scale, RAM's Windows showcases Arline's use of knitting and crocheting techniques to create these larger-than-life sea creatures made of wire.
