Massachusetts-born Sayward Johnson is now based in Chelsea. Her works are made mainly from woven or crocheted copper or brass wire. 

Using special oxidation techniques, she "paints" them by superimposing layers of patina in shades of green and blue, and then refines them using different techniques related to the forge and textiles such as fold-forming and embroidery. 

In this exhibition, Sayward's Woven Stories examine intangible experiences, while her Knitted Mementos serve as small, sculptural reminders of past journeys.

SAYWARD is the Guest Instructor for FIBREWORKS KINGSTON March 11-13, 2016 in Kingston. For details:
