Copper textile art by Banét


A bolt of copper textile weighs in at a number requiring notice on its shipping label and lumbar support for its courier.  Yet, its ethereal possibilities possess the power to manifest a sculpture unrestrained by scale or concept. The origami can be precise or lavishly loose. Finishing touches such as gold leaf or assemblage findings skim along its ridges; the tiniest details can show up to catch light or add vocabulary to the dialogue.  Whatever the story, upon completion, a design can seem to float like gossamer and suspend a heart in weightless contemplation.  


And that is just one way to tell a story! How can I tell yours?
