The White Spire Grove is crocheted by Dallas contributor Evelyn Hardin, our favorite Mad Texan. Evelyn, a master of new and old materials, has incorporated into this work seed-pods, Christmas decorations, hair ornaments, drinking straws and plastic flowers. The long white pillars were inspired by deep-sea tube worms, and the spiral forms unconsciously evoke narwhal tusks. The White Spire Grove was curated by Ann Wertheim.
