1976 Knots

Knots

Mignon was inspired by the ancient sailors’ craft of knot making in her 1976 Knots collection.  “The knot is a richly symbolic form with endless possibilities. As I began to work with this group of pieces, I was fascinated by the flow and feel of fabric, the tension created when it was pulled taut, wrapped tightly. Then translated into metals, these forms take on special fascination – a kind of frozen energy. The knot form becomes a ring or a bracelet, there is a magic effect of wrapping the body.”

For her Five-Knot Cuff, Faget dipped strips of cloth into wax and then wound the strips around a mandrel. The result was a highly textural cuff—her most sculptural piece—that retained the original appearance of the cloth. Shop Collection
