About Tenisha Dotstry
Some people look at rope, and just see that it's an item used to bind, secure, or tie things together. When I see that same spool of rope I don't think of it the same way, I see it as what it can become. My work retains the ropes traditional function to tie things together, but it achieves this when I sew it into a functional vessel or unique sculptural piece. By using cotton rope in its natural neutral state, I am able to highlight the natural color and intriguing texture of the canvas that is made once it is secured together. My pieces are designed to bind together all aspects of your life, one stitch at a time.
