AMERICAN MASTER WEAVER TINA PUCKETT is a self-taught artist who has been weaving since 1981.
Tina is much influenced by the bittersweet vine that grows locally in the northwest corner of Connecticut where she lives. The character of each piece of vine literally dictates what form each basket, bowl, wall sculpture or piece of furniture will take. As Tina then applies her imagination and sense of color to the structural form and to the weaving, indescribably dynamic and colorful works of art emerge.
Tina's working studio and showroom at Whiting Mills, Studio # 305, in Winsted, CT, is open to the public on Saturdays from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm and on Sundays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and also by chance or by appointment (860.309.6934) Monday through Friday. Unless away at a show!
Tina's next upcoming shows are Whimsical Woven Art at Duncaster in Bloomfield, CT, August 27 through September 25, and the Red River Arts & Music Festival, in Shreveport, Louisiana, October 1-8, 2016. At the Whimsical Woven Art show in Bloomfield, there will be a reception on Sunday, September 18, from 4:00pm - 5:30pm during which Tina will be discussing her work at 4:30pm. All are welcome!
