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 will have a piece featured at the Opening Reception of New Haven City-Wide Open Studios (CWOS) in downtown New Haven on Friday, October 5, 2018, and will be present herself at this Opening Reception for those of you who would like to meet Tina.

She will also have an exhibit in CWOS's Alternative Space Weekend at Yale West Campus Friday October 26 - Sunday, October 28.

Tina will be exhibiting a piece in the "Context" Exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA, which runs from October 27, 2018, through February 24, 2019. Meet Tina at the Opening Reception on Saturday, October 27, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm.
