Double Origami

My first sample of Double Origami which yields two folded shapes from one flap (which happens to be a double cloth).   www.susietaylorart.com






Pulled warp (not pulled pork)

This is a sample of a pulled warp sample that I never completed.  I think it is right up my alley now and I have enjoyed seeing it's potential to add dimension to weaving.  www.susietaylorart.com







Studies in gathering

I am playing around with new ideas to weave on the loom.  I am looking at sewing techniques that will translate into weaving.  I am especially interested in pleating, gathering, smocking, shirring and ruffles.  These samples are just common muslin that I am using my sewing machine on with hand stitching but I will try to mimic the structural outcomes with weaving (as I move forward).  www.susietaylorart.com
