Kaoru Izushi

Madison, WI

As I practice my art, I have come to realize that each loop has life, like a cell, and when I knit I am combining these cells to create a whole organism. I use a hand-loomed knitting machine to create the pieces, incorporating intarsia techniques into the designs and finishing them with hand tailoring. I knit carefully with fragile paper/silk yarn with almost invisible silk stainless steel thread together to make it unique texture.
