Note / Van Warmerdam came into contact with all sorts of fabrics as a child because her father traded in textiles. Lace provided the inspiration for this featherweight sculpture. She says of this work: ‘I took great delight in making the drawing on the wooden board and sawing out the hundreds of hard pieces to eventually achieve the effect of lace.’
