Marla S. Rudnick

Marla S. Rudnick’s early forays into knitting and metal work fused into an exploration of knitting precious metals into wearable art and sculpture. She enjoys observing and thinking about how objects occupy space both internally and externally. Her observations manifest themselves in her knitted metal sculptural work by the nature of the sculptures. When viewed her sculptural work reveals the exterior plane, interior plane and the shadow created on the wall. She has trained at Fleischer Art Memorial in Philadelphia, Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, CT, Philadelphia College of Art and The Craft Alliance in Saint Louis, MO. Marla is a Resident Artist at VisArts in Rockville, MD and is a member if the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery in Alexandria, VA. In 2007 and 2009 she received an Honorable Mention in Fiber and a Guild Award from the Creative Craft Council of Washington, DC for her collar Petals and her necklace Transition. knitted metal jewelry and sculpture
