About Kristy Kun

I am deeply moved by the transformative qualities of wool and plant fibers, which, when plied correctly, parallel environmental transformations; Birth, fruition, decay. Formations of water, earth and sky, emerge as if breathing and alive. My hands translate this energy and texture from nature into new form using altered methods of a timeless craft; Formed through a water and energy intense process of rubbing and kneading wool fibers until they tangle and building on personally developed construction methods.  I bring to this work a deep respect for materials and craftsmanship in their reverential structure; striving to inspire viewers to consider delicate eco-systems and the care required to preserve them through the experience of this work.
