- “Ventus,” 2008, 60in. x 30in. x 9in., black bamboo, waxed linen thread, bent and sewn bamboo, fused glass
Born into an artistic family, Charissa Brock has worked in nearly every medium, from wood to clay and from glass to metal. It was not until she came across a bamboo field that she realized her true calling: fiber and three-dimensional forms. With bamboo as her main material, she uses weaving, basketry and sewing techniques to make her masterpieces. Brock was featured in the April 2008 issue of AmericanStyle.
