The Cap'n is made from 50 feet of 100% cotton cord that is coiled and stitched with sewing thread. The resulting textile is flexible but stiff enough to hold its shape. It features an eccentric horizontal handle.

All pieces are lovingly handmade and hand-formed one at a time in Doug Johnston's Brooklyn studio. The rope works are made from sewing thread and braided 100% cotton cord, stitched on my vintage industrial zig-zag sewing machines. The fabrication technique was learned from the crafting community and adapted for my sculptural and formal explorations.
