Abstract:

"Japanese American artist Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) is known for intricate crocheted-wire sculptures, a medium she explored throughout her career after first encountering it as a student at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. After graduating, Asawa moved to San Francisco and created dozens of works in wire and cast metal, among them an iconic bronze fountain--her first of many public commissions--for the city's Ghirardelli Square. Bringing together works from across Asawa's career, this expansive volume examines her output in depth and situates it within the context of 20th-century art"--
