Bill Davenport:Yarn works 1993-99

In 1993 I was taught to crochet by Delfina Vannucci, who had learned from Italian nuns when she was a girl. Being left-handed, I never learned to knit very well, and crochet, with it's ability to be added onto anywhere, lent itself to the complicated sculpture I wanted to do. I originally thought of it as a new type of ultra-thick paint.

I bought leftover yarn by the ton from thrift stores. I used a lot of it, but since I never had a lot of the same color, I approximated.
