Riitta

Riitta

Dyed maple and birch plywoods, hand dyed handwoven cotton, aluminum
Made from upcycled scraps from my furniture making, the angled red pieces in the middle are from the feet of the Sonoma Sofa, the aluminum and big gray frame are from the Ellison Cabinet.

This series is titled like hurricanes are named, female names in alphabetical order. “Riitta” is the 18th in the series.”Riitta” is named after the lovely previous owner of my current house. Riitta, the person, hails from Finland; and “Riitta,” the artwork, is the first wall piece I made while living in this house.
