Artist Statement

The Knitterati is an eclectic group of knitters and crocheters. Long wanting to partner with a fabricator to assist in the creation of a custom structure to showcase their textiles in a unique and interesting way, the Knitteratti sought out Dr. Alex Rodriguez. Admiring his existing work, Whirling Wheels (Art on the Atlanta BeltLine 2012), the textile mavens knew they had found their man. Together they have created a series of whimsical, original sculptures.
