Summer 2020 - Grid Weaving
The colors in this piece were created using plants foraged from and cultivated in Detroit between July and August 2020, making this is very unique snapshot of a time and place.
It was handwoven on a floor loom using a wetspun linen warp and Michigan milled wool weft. The grid design is a choice to give each color it's own space and to appreciate the individual within the whole.
The weaving is handsewn onto cotton and stretched over a frame.
Dye plants include: madder root, indigo, marigold, black eyed susans, willow bark, black walnuts, alder cones, coreopsis, sunflower seeds and sumac.
Size: 20 x 21"
**This weaving will be on display at the Designer's Show House until October 4th but will be available after that.**
