Guest Star Friday #79...Eleanor Bolton

Blue Coiled Neckpiece and Red Coiled Neckpiece

Today's Guest Star is British designer, Eleanor Bolton. The work that caught my attention is her minimal and abstract Rope Collection, pieces made using cotton rope that is dyed, coiled, and knotted. I enjoy her precise, elegant use of this typically utilitarian material and the large scale that most of the finished pieces occupy. Eleanor also makes some intriguing objects like her Collection Boxes that house a variety of objects and 2-dimensional works.
