Reviews - What do customers think about Latticework?

A seam ripper, scissors and needles  Jun 27, 2004
A seam ripper, scissors and needles are not the usual writing tools for poetry. These pointed instruments appear in this collection of poems to sculpt poetry that is tough and tender, ripping fragments from household tasks of repair and creation written with a personal knowledge of working from home. These fragments from daily life equal the poetry of surprise.

Latticework is written in a collaboration with artist, Erika Carter of WA, a visual poet/quiltmaker who uses fabric and textile processes as her medium. Judith Skillman, who has previously published other poems, won awards and fellowships, takes this collaborative opportunity to visit themes of transformation. In particular, the poem "House of Moon" evolves like a color field painting, a nightscape which lulls you with colors and images, then suddenly dissolves into an unexpected visual revelation. It could be a scene from film noire about loss and change.

My first reading of this collection was continuous, much like reading a novel. Days passed and I found myself thinking about the power of a phrase with an image such as "snow is never easy to wear...just another way of aging". Many of Skillman's poems come close to my experience as an artist who works within and from family life trying to find poetry not only in words but also in fabric and paint, scissors and thread.

Latticework is a lovely collection of visual and contemplative writing which needs to be kept at hand- to underline, to savor, to read patiently as meanings change with the reader's circumstance.

The collaboration between the two artists worked. Now I wait for Ms. Skillman's next solo journey in print. It is possible that tools of transformation for cloth are equally valuable to rip and cut words into something fresh and new.

Schulze has self published two volumes of poetry -
Leftover Traces of Yesterday and Watching for Signs.
