Kaoru Izushi

Madison, WI

I have heard that a knit piece is alive. It grows and contracts. But as I practice my art, I have also 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 place priority on natural fibers, including cotton, wool, mohair, silk, and a paper yarn with silk stainless steel from Kyoto, Japan.
