Over the past year I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know the inspiring people behind Bullseye Projects, part of Bullseye Glass—an amazing organisation based in Portland, Oregon. Bullseye works with a worldwide community of glass artists and itself manufactures, promotes, exhibits, and educates in matters art glass.
After I attended a Bullseye-initiated symposium at North Lands (the Caithness centre dedicated to glass making), an idea was hatched. Lani McGregor, director of Bullseye Projects (the exhibitions and education arm of Bullseye), asked me to respond to the work of another glass artist.
The response was not to be made in glass, but in knitwear: how would cross-fertilisation between media influence a new Nielanell knit collection?
