Sandra Backlund says that all her shapes come from thinking of the process as a collage. She knits her shapes as she goes, without a pattern or a plan. All of Backlund‘s designs have a clear sculptural quality and one can feel both her technique and imagination in all her work. There is a deep respect for the handicraft process.
"I always start with an idea. Then I begin to experiment with different handicraft techniques and materials. I improvise a lot and allow myself to lose control to see what happens.”
