Elspeth Vance is a fiber artist and textile designer, living and working in Portland OR. Under the umbrella of her brand, Noctiluca, she knits one-of-a-kind garments and home goods by hand on two needles. Her designs investigate various textile structures and seek to uncover their commonalities; how is weaving like knitting? Or knot tying like weaving? These explorations have led her to reinterpret historic weave drafts into charted knitting patterns, a delightful marriage of her most beloved textile practices.
