How I love texture and color!
I started a new set of weavings today, in a turned taquete structure, something I've not done before. I'm greatly inspired and enchanted by Bonnie Inouye's weavings, and this weave structure is something she has used to great success. Although I've got a head full of ideas for other, new directions to move into with my textiles -- doing more of what I would now call Art Cloth -- I'm still wanting to try more traditional structures and designs I haven't gotten to yet in my rather brief weaving career.
I'll post an image tomorrow of what I've done thus far.
