After all, wood is hardly known for its suppleness and such bending feats."

"I SPENT AT LEAST A HALF HOUR IN AWE OF KATIE GONG‘S WOODEN SCULPTURES THAT LOOK LIKE GIANT TWISTED PIECES OF TWINE OR TWIST-TIE, BUT ARE MADE ENTIRELY OF BEAUTIFUL WOOD. AFTER STEAMING EACH PIECE OF RAFFIA FOR HOURS, KATIE TIES THEM INTO GIANT KNOTS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. THE RESULT IS A PIECE THAT FEELS REMARKABLY KINETIC AND FULL OF LIFE. I COULDN’T STOP STARING AT THEM AND LOOKING FOR MORE PICTURES ONLINE, SO I THOUGHT I’D SHARE SOME OF MY FAVORITES HERE TODAY. CLICK HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT ON INSTAGRAM AND HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT IN KATIE’S SHOP." –GRACE
