Weavings 2007-2008



Both of the above were made from a large open weaving of silk, bamboo and cotton. I laid in other fibers as you can see in the detail on the left. I still have a large part of this weaving that I would like to incorporate into my felt art work in the future. Both are clickable for larger views.

All of the images above are of one weaving; a raw silk and bamboo piece that was over 12' long! I love the way the bamboo shimmers against the raw silk. All are clickable for larger views.
