Adrienne Rogers Adrienne Rogers - Hand-knitted textiles for the home.
 

The creative possibilities inherent in hand-knitting have always intrigued me. Needle size, yarn weight and mathematical calculations dictate the outcome of a repetitive flow of continuous knots. Simple tools and complex stitch arrangements result in a delicate and rhythmic dance. I strive to create pieces that maximize the combination of a few basic elements to achieve unexpectedly expressive sculptural forms.

The works are rooted in tradition but have a modern sensibility. Each side and every edge is carefully crafted to play off the textures. I embrace the natural possibilities of the materials. Being aware of their intrinsic qualities is critical to allowing them to live and breathe. I endeavor to ensure the materials exhibit their natural characteristics while filling every space with thought, interest and expression.
