I'm doing well when I am able to post once a week, so I don't think I'm up to the challenge. So instead I'm doing mine in one post, today.
For my 5 artists, I will name 5 other contemporary fiber artists who work in sprang. Some are participating in the 5-day challenge already, and one I'm not even sure is even on FB. But their work is a must-see.
Check out Chieko Aihara's superb work: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sprang-and-Textile-of-Chieko-Aihara/219881031809
Graciela Foradori not only does nice sprang work but also exquisite hand-manipulated gauze weave: https://es-la.facebook.com/graciela.foradori
Edith Meusnier creates fantastic huge outdoor installation art using sprang: http://www.edithmeusnier.net/
Carol James is a sprang and fingerweaving evangelist: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carol-James-fingerweaver-sprang-artist/245302248842412
Ellen Shipley is the only other person I've ever found trying to combine weaving with sprang: http://wefttomyowndevices.blogspot.com/2012/08/bent-cane-sprang-loom.html
And for a bonus, Blue's web site http://www.denblauwenswaen.nl/en/sprang/
and her facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Sprangbraiding are great resources.
Here are 5 images of my work... enjoy!
