All That We Cannot See Handwoven Art Yardage

A name has been drawn for All That We Cannot See Handwoven Art Yardage. Thank you so very much to all of you for supporting my work!

This piece was woven by me here at my home-studio in New Mexico on a warp of Organic Cotton-Linen and a weft of naturally dyed raw silk. The dyes used in this piece were black walnut leaves and fruits, buckthorn leaves and fruits, rabbit brush flowers and leaves, marigolds, rustic, osage, lobster mushroom, sandalwood and cochineal. (…and there may be others that I’ve forgotten now)

Colors and forms can play to the the notion of separating space with our ideas. Whether we choose to be fluid or rigid in our thinking and understanding is up to us. I like my weavings to be a reminder of our irrevocable connection to each other and to the earth.

A sweet stack.

9 lbs 2oz of fiber, 77.1 feet of warp. I measure and weigh all of the pieces that come off my looms, entering them into a spreadsheet so I can see how much I weave and use every year. It’s really just out of curiosity to see year over year the weight and volume of my work.

Look at those mittens. Apparently Bernie is into natural dyes too.

The Lacuna

‘’The most important thing about a person is always the thing you don’t know.” I recently finished ‘The Lacuna’ by Barbara Kingsolver and this quote stuck with me. Though our perceptions of ourselves and each other can seem so fixed and true, there are always more nuanced ways to understand things. This story was running through my head as I began this piece.
