The Filamental Emblems

A collection of poems by

Filamental Emblems abstract rather than represent, suggest rather than preach; in doing so, they attempt to re-create subjects simultaneously in word and image. Each combines poetry with the visual art of intricate crocheting, often incorporating as few as two or three strands of fine sewing thread in subtle arrangements of colors that vary from round to round, providing as many possibilities for nuance and blending as might an artist's palette. A single Emblem may include thirty or more individual threads, each color selected for its relation to the overall pattern, to other colors surrounding it, or to the central idea, image, or symbol - embodied in verbal form in the overlaying poem - that the Emblem explores.
