Mary Lee Hu is truly a master of metal. Her technique of weaving metal is something that I aspire to be able to do sometime in my life. She weaves metal in forms that gives warmth, motion and life to such a cold and hard material. My favorite pieces are the ones made of gold. They are either so geometrically beautiful, or quite abstract it reminds me of the movement of a dancer’s skirt. The weaves are so tight, its hard to believe they’re hand-made. I especially like her pieces because they exploit the properties of the material and truly brings them to life without depending on some fancy jewels.

Anyone interested should go to the Bellevue Art Museum while her exhibit is showing. Her pieces are truly inspiring and one of a kind.
