"'Fibre Work-17 carries this ambiguity further than ever. It is composed entirely of objects created with fibres: cord, sisal, hemp, rope, wool, linen, jute, paper and other such materials and constructed by means of weaving, knotting, macrame, braiding, plaiting, knitting, wrapping, and related techniques. The work, in my opinion, is far more pleasurable and interesting than many of the expensive products of so-called 'serious' art;...I am convinced that in 1973 we are in a crisis from which art will not emerge unless those who call themselves artists reject indifference to traditions of craft..." -- John Bernard Myers, page .
