Laura Ellen Bacon

People who make objects have the opportunity to help us think differently about the world, even if for a split second, and this ability to transport is no small measure the gift of Laura Ellen Bacon. She weaves her wonderfully organic structures in the most unlikely of places, they belong to the woods but are perhaps at their most potent when home is an architectural structure. They emerge in a parasitic manner in the most unlikely of places, possibly having grown overnight, large organic willow forms that beg questions about origin and purpose, almost alive as if they have actually chosen to occupy their space. This natural state belies the long intense process that results in their being.
