How does it feel to be a single stitch in a sweater?

Or one penny tile on a bathroom floor?

Knit with the tension just right, laid down one at a time.

These purposeful actions are so precise

in the moment,

devotional.

Individuals and their particular contributions,

needed but often unnoticed.

Honesty in materials,

appreciation of history,

practice.

Amy Simons is an American artist living and working in Washington state. She works primarily in ceramics and printmaking. Themes in her work include gradual shifts, intentional mark making, and the space between this line and the next.
