Today, on facebook, the National Parks of Canada said that it is ‘World Wide Water Day’.
So, I decided to post a photo of my newest tapestry:’ Woven Women: Our Lady of the Waters’
And, here is her poem:
Our Lady of the Waters
Moving in us, through us-
Fill us with awe
at the beauty
the Every Thing….
Fill us with delight
in the power of
the sacred drop of water.
What color is water?
It is, ‘Yes’.
It is, ‘Life’.
It is ALL.
‘Woven Women- Our Lady of the Waters’ is a mixed media tapestry, including wool yarn, stones, wire and pounded metal.
I wove her with several different looms: A tapestry loom, a 2 harness table loom, a 2 harness Saori floor loom, a peg loom and also used a spool knitter.
She’s 28 inches tall by 11 1/2 inches wide.
I think that she is probably my favorite piece that I have ever woven.
Here’s a closeup of a section that I wove on the table loom at 15 epi.
I used tabby, inlay, soumak, clasped weft and embroidery.
It was VERY slow to weave:
