Nelson: In “Memory of a Bowl” and “Memory of An Urn,” both which appear in this month’s issue, you trace the history of no-longer-in-use wooden bowls and broken artifacts. Can you explain the technique of creating these works using thread wrapped around the objects?
Klare: First, I should say I am fascinated with the blurring of the lines between contemporary art, craft, and design. These “Memory” works sit somewhere between them, in that loosely drawn area, incorporating a technique that could be called “craft” (threadwork) but that crosses over to contemporary art and design…
I literally draw the lines and curves of each bowl, with my hands and with the thread.
