The inspiration for "Grow Lights"
The Making of "Grow Lights"
My Conquistadors are exotic, invasive species of knitted glass and raku-fired clay. They were inspired by observing the twisting and turning growth of sprouts and seedlings. They, in turn, became inspiration for my installation proposal for Bellwether 2012, Grow Lights, which is now on display next to the Bellevue Arts Museum on Bellevue Way, in Bellevue, Washington.

For Bellevue's Biennial sculpture show, Bellwether 2012, I proposed creating five - eight foot tall concrete sculptures covered with knitted LED rope light. They were inspired by my knitted glass "Conquistadors".
When the LED rope light proved to be too stiff to knit, I knitted colored rope skins over the concrete and wove in LED lights.
