When faced with challenges, one of the ways I work my way through them is to weave.
This tapestry is the result of dealing with a huge challenge- how to cope with difficult news about the health of my beloved daughter.
This piece is called: ‘Woven Women- Uncertainty’, and she has a little poem….
She’s a mixed media piece, woven in soumak, with inkle bands and spool knitted cords.
I spool knitted wire to encapsulate sea glass, seashell fragments and pottery shards.
Her hands are shaped from wire, and they clasp a purpleheart wooden heart.
She’s approximately 20 inches tall by 11 inches at the base.
And, here is her poem:
is the trembling bridge
the quivering shadows
from the heart.
