Notes on this piece…
I found a stack of my grandma Rachel’s old Polaroids a while back and remembered something I had forgotten over the years. As she was weaving, Rachel would occasionally loosen up the weaving and snap a shot of the tapestry hanging over the front of the loom. She would then staple or tape these photos together as the piece progressed, so she could see how it was all coming together. I used to love watching her do this… seeing the piece slowly unfold before our eyes.
