A gallery of handwoven works to be worn and for interior spaces. I like using silks of two different weights for the warp to create depth and movement. Or use a sticky, slubby silk for the warp and contrast it with soft, uneven handspun alpaca for the weft. Every part of weaving, from preparing the loom to finally sitting down and throwing the shuttle, is a meditative act. Threads interact, weaving their own story as the fabric is created. I anticipate taking the work off the loom and gathering it in my hands, watching how the materials play, fold and move.
