And the Weave Goes On
Here is my new Grace-full studio. Gary, as you know, is living elsewhere for the foreseeable future.
My first piece in the new studio will be a Bambu 12 Woven Words scarf with the words
(fittingly) GRACE/RELEASE. I like to do a wrapping before I wind a warp. It gives a chance to see and work out some of the colors.
As you know, the client selects both the words and the colors. I am merely the agent in this co-creating process. I use the black and white "almost ikat" to separate the words.
And, again, that most wonderful and scary moment---cutting the weaving off the loom.
And then the most exciting moment--walking backwards across the studio while holding the beginning edge of the weaving.
Stay tuned for more on the words: Grace and Release!
