Shane Waltener creates elaborate installations around his lace doilies, such as this one entitled Auntie Peggy Has Departed. To him, doilies represent dreamcatchers that make a moment in the past accessible for the present.
Another rather striking work that I found at his website is a doily spider web meant to be viewed in front of a chandelier by glass artist Dale Chihuly. The juxtaposition of Waltener's white lines and Chihuly's colored spheres is quite lovely.
