American Master Weaver Tina Puckett of Winsted, CT, pictured with some of her baskets, woven flower sculptures, and a handwoven tiki bar

AMERICAN MASTER WEAVER TINA PUCKETT is a self-taught artist who has been weaving since 1981.

Tina is much influenced by the bittersweet vine that grows locally in the northwest corner of Connecticut where she lives. The character of each piece of vine literally dictates what form each basket, bowl, wall sculpture or piece of furniture will take. As Tina then applies her imagination and sense of color to the structural form and to the weaving, indescribably dynamic and colorful works of art emerge.

Tina's working studio and showroom at Whiting Mills, Studio # 305, in Winsted, CT, is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, and also by chance or by appointment (860.309.6934) Monday through Friday. Unless away at a show!

Tina's work will be featured in an Art Exhibit @ the Bruce S. Kershner Art Gallery in Fairfield, CT, from May 19 to July 13, 2018. The public is cordially invited to a reception @ the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery on Saturday, May 26 from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. See Tina's Shows page for details, including hours the gallery exhibition is open from May 26 through July 13.

Tina's next show is the Westport Fine Arts Festival in Westport, CT on Sat|Sun July 14 & 15, 2018.

Tina will be teaching her next class, Traditional and Free-form Basket Weaving, at the Metchosin International Summer School for the Arts in Victoria, B.C., Canada, July 2-6, 2018. For details, see the Classes page of Tina's website.
