"As with most of my woven pieces, I begin without having a final form in mind. I start with the center hole and work outward. The pattern of this piece was inspired and adapted from a doily. Then I improvised the composition from there, adding the gold mesh table runner almost as a bridal veil. The final form reminded me of a hand mirror, something from a fairytale. Hence where the name was derived."

Daniela Puliti studied painting at Montclair State University (BFA, 2011) and The Savannah College of Art and Design (MFA, 2015). Puliti manipulates craft-based materials with an intuitive painter's sensibility; creating installations, paintings, and mixed media works about gender, sexuality, vulnerability, and mental illness. She identifies as a gender-questioning femme, forever evaluating the shifting ideals around intersectional feminism within structural misogyny. Puliti has participated in short term residencies at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NYC), Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project, ChaNorth and a forthcoming residency at Millay Arts (August 2022). Puliti is an alumna of the A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship Program in Brooklyn, NY (2017-2018), which granted her first solo exhibition in NYC in February 2018. Her most recent solo exhibition, "There were no casseroles...", focused on the grieving process after the death of her partner. In 2021, Daniela Puliti was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship from the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
