This piece was created with the I Ching hexagram I (increase) (number 42.) resting in my heart and mind. The I Ching or Book of Changes has been an important part of my life, giving a place for meditation and reflection, and so I have brought it into my work as a form of physical meditation through creation. This piece is one of the first in what I hope to be a large series based on the hexagrams of the I Ching.
This piece was woven by me here at my home-studio in New Mexico with a warp of Organic Cotton-Linen and a weft of hand dyed raw silk. It was woven with both a plain and pattern weave with shifting shades of an approaching storm, to the brightest sunset shining through to the deepest vibrant heart.
