feature art friday | janet morton

when i worked at the kitchener-waterloo art gallery in ontario, i met a textile artist name janet morton. she is possibly one of the kindest artists that i have ever had the pleasure of meeting. she was creating a large scale installation for one of our galleries in which the room would be painted dark red and morton's knitted flowers would crawl up the wall on vines. i was tickled when she told me about the knitting bee she had put together to create all of the flowers, and i was even more delighted when she let us create stamens using white pipe cleaners and bottle caps. i used to love spending time in that gallery space while the exhibition was on so those are the type of images i have included here today.

however, morton is also known for creating cozies, specifically object cozies such as televisions, chairs and lamps etc - but also giant house cozies!! - click here.
