TINA PUCKETT is a American FIBER ARTIST and a self-taught artist who has been weaving since 1981.
Tina is much influenced by the bittersweet vine that grows locally in the northwest corner of Connecticut where she lives. The character of each piece of vine literally dictates what form each basket, bowl, wall sculpture or piece of furniture will take. As Tina then applies her imagination and sense of color to the structural form and to the weaving, indescribably dynamic and colorful works of art emerge.
Tina's study of set design in college developed her understanding of both color and construction. She has created her own weaving technique, which she calls "Dimensional Weaving," in which she lays down layer upon layer of reeds of different colors to produce multi-hued, richly-textured, highly dimensional woven sculpture. With her knowledge of construction, Tina is also able to build very sturdy pieces of furniture.
Tina's works have been exhibited in museums, art galleries, libraries and at craft show events both nationally and internationally. Her work has also been featured in magazines, newspapers, books and on television. Please visit Tina’s website, tinasbaskets.com, for a full listings.
