After working as a jacquard designer for 11 years, I revisited my handloom and discovered some holes in my weaving knowledge. To remedy this, I pursued the CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE from the HANDWEAVERS GUILD OF AMERICA which forced me to learn and execute many foundational weave structures such as lace weaves, tapestry, overshot, leno, velvet, corduroy and many others. I was evaluated and passed Level 1 Handweaving in 2012 and am currently pursuing my own woven artwork.
Crane Wife #2. Approximately 14" X 21" X 1/2"
This piece is not only the blending of origami and weaving together but I used white and natural weft yarns to color the raised origami sections. It is an amalgam of art forms and subtle colors.
