Ed Rossbach

"Someone will design a building and they'll bring in a fiber artist, but would anyone think of having an astonishingly beautiful piece of fiber and calling in an architect to design a building that would let it speak? Decorative arts, crafts - whatever these things are called - the things are always put into relations, and I would like them to be, I want fiber to be, in relation to me."
