Marcia Morse Mullins
I am a fiber artist whose work explores borders, edges, boundaries, patterns, and textures. I weave with Black ash splint, Lauhala palm leaf, English willow, hickory and birch bark, honeysuckle, grapevine, and other natural materials. My body of work includes an installation of woven live vines at Loyce Harpe Park in Polk County, FL. Sculptural forms turn and twist on frameworks of gnarly roots, twisted vines, and naturally shed deer antlers. Traditional vessels merge new materials with time-honored techniques and colored borders punctuate complex twills to highlight the mathematical formulas that lie within.
