Through a combination of wrapping motions -- spinning, winding, twisting, and dropping – Cindy Gosselin (b. 1964) creates her bound sculptures with a focused, obsessive intensity. Pulling various found objects into the coccoon-like forms, from wooden spools to house keys, they continue to morph and grow until Gosselin deems them “too heavy.” The artist is blind, and her bound vessels are created entirely though her sense of touch.


Aside from her sculpture, Gosselin has a sincere passion for music, and has performed in a number of venues in Philadelphia. She works at the Center for Creative Works five days a week, and has been working there since its founding in 2011.
