Creativity in Dimensional Weaving
Anastasia Azure hand-weaves dimensional art, exploring the grace of geometry. She shares her connection with a harmonious universe by creating contemporary wall sculptures and innovative jewelry. Combining metalsmithing with an ancient, Peruvian weaving technique, she uses wire and hand-dyed nylon monofilament on a traditional floor loom.
She earned her MFA in Textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011 and BFA in Jewelry Metal Arts at the California College of the Arts in 2005. She has participated in many Artist Residencies and travels the globe teaching workshops. Her recent commissions include the U.S. Embassy (Maputo, Mozambique) and the Grand Hyatt (Abu Dhabi, UAE). Basedin a historic Pawtucket, Rhode Island mill building, she frequently escapes to bike ride the Blackstone River Greenway or go trampolining.
