|Al Gore may think he is the inventor of the Internet
but in the small town of Williamstown, Vt. lives the creator of the
first Web site!
|Most of us think of spiders as yucky creatures with
sticky webs to be disposed of as soon as they appear. Spiderman Will
Knight thinks of them as living objects of beauty and creation.
By sheer accident one day over fifty years ago, Will was in his garage
painting and spraying and by chance captured a spider webbing on his still
tacky painting surface. He was overcome by the beauty and intricate work
of the spiderís labor and has been studying and sharing spiders with the
rest of the world ever since.
||Will spends the harsh, isolating Vermont winters
preparing wood for his plaques, cutting, planning, sanding and
staining the pine to make a suitable base for the beautiful web. By
May he is ready and the spiders are too. He has specially built
frames in and around his Web Farm. As the spider completes his web,
Will encourages it to "leave" so that he may harvest it.
There are plenty of new WEB Sites in and around the garage for the
spider to move and begin spinning again.
|The harvesting and mounting of the web is what Will
enjoys the most and he is happy to perform this for you upon your
visit. You may purchase the web he harvests for you, or shop from
the selection he has in his small shop. Will credits the spider as
the creator and he just provides the "canvas" to highlight
The plaques are wonderful wall art and make the one of a kind gift most
of us are always looking for. The Web given to our young grandson hangs in
his bedroom and has been taken to school on several occasions. Will also
is a fine woodworker with lovely tables and lap desks for sale in his
It is no wonder he has appeared on the TODAY SHOW, ALL THINGS
CONSIDERED and in many publications. Will is as knowledgeable about
spiders as any university professor and his sense of humor is as unique as
Legends say that spiders are good luck. It will be your lucky day if
you wander off of I- 89 exit 5 to VT. Rt. 14 to Williamstown, Vt. and look
for the signs for the Spider Web Farm on Spider Web Farm Road. Will and
his wife Terry will be there tending the original WEB SITE and they have
saved an original and unrepeatable work of art just for you!
