Spirit Moon
Spirit Moon

Detail of 4 selvage wool tapestry. The emphasis on waves of eccentric wefts in this tapestry convey a sense of the all pervading energy in this universe. The feathers and moon are archetypal spiritual symbols. This is woven on the Navajo loom. Incidentally, the term "eccentric wefts" refers to wefts that stray from the strictly horizontal line that they usually follow, particularly in textiles woven on the floor loom.
I now do most of my weaving on backstrap looms and upright Navajo looms. It is a different kind of freedom.
