I belong to an internet group -- Handmade Artists Forum (HAF) -- that features a variety of different artists in multiple media. This weeks feature artist is Dahlish. She is from North Dakota and knits various pieces of wearable art. On the internet, she sells her pieces on ETSY. On her personal blog, she describes her unique inspiration for her very usable pieces.
I find her art quite interesting, as she states frequently that she is "winging" it when she makes the piece. The "Checkerboard" above would fit me as I am a chess player and this would be perfect to express one of my passions. When I retired, I received a very beautiful handcrafted inlaid wood chess board as my retirement present. To illustrate the wearable feature of her art:
As you can see very wearable, also you can see the unique style that she has when knitting (an art that I find completely undoable). In fact, knitting makes me feel like the next piece:
Well, that is my impression of the artist Dahlish. I will also forgive her for the shellacking that the University of North Dakota gave my college hockey team this year in the NCAA playoffs.
