I work as an Utilitarian Aesthetic Artist testing the space between art and craft. 

This piece is Black and Red acrylic yarn, white wool yarn and a variety of fabric.  My inspiration is The History of Hand Knitting  by Richard Rutt.  I like the questioning of craft as self-expression printed out on a blanket.  My hope is that it will get the viewer to think about how they distinguish art art from craft and where those conclusion come from.
