the magic, though, is that these textiles have YOU to look at them and appreciate them. you are the best seeker and finder and re-treasure-er of beautiful things that i know. and this is quite a gift!
singing colour there...
I like the squares - but also the way the colours make your eyes do a little dance to come up with what's really going on...your work is always beautiful.
that was a new one on me, i had to google camelid, hair of llamas, alpacas etc. so this might be an old Sth American textile? anyway this is definately beautiful and the maker was extremely skilled. k.
I can see why that inspires, it inspires me too!
I LOVE being inspired and you inspire me, Velma!! xo
there are many many beautiful textile traditions, but i just love the ancient peruvian treasures. in one place i worked, there was a piece in the collection. i used to sneak upstairs and adore it.
magic--and years of learning and hours of work. love the strong colours. looks like it was first dyed with yellow, then red and finally top dyed with indigo. a treasure
i'm still trying to wrap my mind around warp scaffolding...i mean i get it, just haven't done it-
i found that article (and the pic) too just now, i don't think i even get it...k.
