Interweave White by Rachel Brown, 72″ x 26″, handspun natural wool, 1984

This Dose is part of our exploration of series. You can click here and here to see more from this exploration.

This and tomorrow’s Dose were sold as a set, shortly after Weaving Southwest opened in Taos (early 80’s). They were handspun of natural wool and handwoven (of course). Many have replicated this design (including myself), as it is a fun and challenging design.

“Stone totems are built and eventually washed away along the ledges at the edge of the sea. These symbols of the spirits within the stones are powerful reminders of the layers of creation within.” – Priscilla

Fractured Mathematician tapestry #2 by Elizabeth Wood, 8 inches x 15 inches, Churro wool on wool warp

Materials in detail: Churro Club Yarn samples and 4-ply Worsted Wool warp

“The inspiration behind this tapestry is the use of the color churro yarn samples and geometry. I decided that a tapestry would be a good way of using the Churro Club yarn samples. I decided to create this fractured mathematician tapestry because it allows me to play with color and geometric shapes, although some of them are slightly skewed. I think the result of the two created a lovely small tapestry that can be hung in an office. I love the Churro Club because it is like receiving a present every month! It is always full of surprises and helps sustain my yarn addiction.” – Elizabeth

Handwoven “wall muffler” by Carol Devenski, hand-dyed Rio Grande Rug Yarn

“This piece was inspired by the Gulf beach we’ve gone to each summer for thirty years! White sand, beach umbrellas, watery blues that meet puffy clouds and sunny skies! Now it will hang in our apartment to muffle the echoes in the hallway.” – Carol D.

 


Cow Spirit in Paradise by Priscilla Alden, 20″ x 36″

“The cow pastures and ocean views in Vieques PR surround our winter rented home. The cows are quite comical, and their comings and goings are part of the rhythm of our day. The pueblos and their ceremonies, and weaving traditions of the American Southwest keep calling me to come back and weave and explore. The places I go inspire both abstract and more traditional designs.” – Priscilla
