“I kept experimenting. My notes are full of the designs I drew at night while Leona did mothering things. I made diamond-shaped trees, cathedral-shaped trees, a bird cage, a ladder, a zigzag, a telephone booth, a spiral, a heart, a tree with a knot in it—twenty years’ worth of evenings, sitting in a barn drawing plans and building forms to direct the trees. I do not know if I was ever wanted in the house; it never occurred to me that I could belong there.” —Angela Pelster, from “Inosculation,” in Limber (Sarabande, 2014)
