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 is located at Whiting Mills, 100 Whiting Street, Studio # 305, in Winsted, CT, and is now open to the public by chance Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. An appointment is preferred, and can be arranged by calling or texting me at 860.309.6934.

Tina always has a varied assortment of her woven pieces available for immediate purchase. Just reach out to her at 860.309.6934 to see what's available now. Convenient shipping is available for those who need or prefer that.

Tina will be exhibiting a piece in the Artists Collective's Exhibition in the Sheffer Gallery of the Westport Library at 20 Jessup Road in Westport, CT, from July 9 through September 28, 2021.

And she will be participating in the Artists Collective's Pop-Up Trunk Show on July 11, 2021 at the Westport Library, lower parking lot, from 11:00am - 4:00pm.
