Woven Women – Uncertainty

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:

Uncertainty

is the trembling bridge

crossing from

Here

to

What if?

Courage

is the

breath

that tears

the quivering shadows

from the heart.
