Knotting is something you can do without any kind of equipment. All you need is imagination and dexterity."

-Ed Bing Lee


There is nothing like the tactile feel of the threads, as well as the rhythm of making knot after knot, until my shape takes form. I often incorporate beading to add luster and texture, which allows me a multitude of possibilities in surface embellishment. My inspirations range from the amazing colors found in nature to the beaded detail work on a magnificent couture evening gown. On the most personal level, knotting gives me a chance to immerse myself in a very peaceful, private meditative process that allows me to create simple, elegant forms with bold, striking colors."

-Merrill Morrison
