My Latest Woven Shibori


Today I'm online with my blog. All this technostuff when I really want to be weaving. I'm hoping that over time the tech side of this artist can live in the background so I can get back to my art.
I just finished this piece last week. It was woven with 20/2 bombyx silk warp and crepe rayon weft, giving it a wonderful drapey quality. I used natural dyes here -- logwood gray, fustic and cutch. I'm hoping to have another new Woven Shibori piece here late this week so stop back soon.
Meanwhile, back to the studio for me today!

Much to my surprise I have gotten more done since I started my blog. On the other hand, I am not a production weaver. But blogging has really intensified my focus. I hope you too will find blogging to be more than a time drain.
