BOAT /bōt/ + POET /ˈpōət/
An integration of sculpture and accessory hand-crafted in Portland, Oregon by Emily Bixler, BOET is a collection of textures that test the collaboration of fiber and metal. Inspired by a youth of sailing and hot-air ballooning, the BOET line explores drape and composition; balancing hand-crocheted fiber with vintage brass chains to create shapes that feel at once familiar and fresh. The line has expanded beyond the jewelry line to include a wide array of wood and fiber sculptures and installations.
We have a working studio in Portland that houses the BOET line and all sculpture making and commissions, open for appointments.
