Diane Itter was an American fibre artist working in the early 1970’s creating small-scale works from fine, vividly coloured threads. Inspired by historical textiles from Peru, Japan and Africa, her work took on a very different approach to other fibre artists of the time, who were producing large scale hangings and woven sculptures using natural, undyed fibres and unevenly tied knots. Studying at the University of Pittsburg, she was encouraged by the artist William Itter (her future husband) to experiment with hand-tied knots rather than loom-woven fabrics. A game changer of her time, Itter led to the next wave of experimental fibre artists such as Lia Cook and Helena Hernmarck. Sadly she died in 1989 at just age 43 but her beautiful work can still be seen in museum collections around the world.
