Ripple Effect by Donna Kallner

Stitching by hand gives plenty of time for reflection. Stitch connects to stitch, layer builds on layer. Patterns emerge and disappear, and rearrange themselves like the elements of a story that changes depending on who’s telling it.

Stories help us make sense of the world. Most of my work tells stories about relationships and connections — between people, through time, about place. Usually, I begin with an idea, throw in a technique or some materials, add a “what if,” and pay attention to see what evolves as I work.

My Shoal is supposed to be in the “All Things Considered VIII” exhibit at The Grand Hand gallery in St. Paul, Minnesota July 9 through August 9, 2015, and then at the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Massachusetts September 18 through November 22, 2015. I’ll also have a piece in the “Made To Be Used” exhibit at the Philip Dickel Basket Museum Gallery in Middle Amana, Iowa May 3 through September 30, 2015.
