In the northeast corner of the Great Salt Lake is a remote stretch of land called Rozel Point. This wild part of Utah was chosen by Robert Smithson in 1970 as the sight of his iconic earthwork Spiral Jetty. To Smithson, its isolated setting was an important part of the work; viewing the art was a journey both physical and metaphysical. A winter journey to Rozel Point becomes a study in the beauty of art as well as muted nature. Yellow and brown dormant plants are set against black basalt and white snow creating a feast of mid-winter color.

I live and work in Salt Lake City yet I am woefully ignorant about the Great Salt Lake. I am attempting to learn more about the lake that has recently inspired me…and to knit that inspiration. I hope you like the patterns I am creating.
