Kristin Pesola

Kristin Pesola is a Portland, Oregon, based fiber artist who is fascinated by the process of creating beautiful things using a variety of interlacement techniques. To her, the transformation of supple strands of simple materials into complex objects of considerable strength and structural integrity (such as cloth or jewelry) seems like alchemy. Kristin’s fascination with interlacement began almost 25 years ago in Finland where she first learned to weave. There, she fell in love with the very physical, rhythmic, meditative process of weaving. In 2008, Kristin quit her job and enrolled in a post-baccalaureate fibers program at the Oregon College of Art and Craft. While Kristin’s primary body of work continues to focus on weaving, she started working with wire in a 3-D fibers class. There, she created large sculptural pieces by crocheting with 22 gauge steel wire. Kristin then was inspired to scale down the work for jewelry applications after taking a knitting with wire workshop with artist Adrienne Sloane.
