FOUND OBJECT TAPESTRY LOOMS...
These small tapestries are woven on found objects. For years I would bring home bits and pieces of flotsam from a hike or day at the beach and now they have become mini looms.
My latest “found object tapestry” represents a wonderful trip to Scotland and uses a piece of metal I found in the Forth River in Queensferry. The white yarn is spun from a tuft found on a fence during a hike on our last day and represents all the wonderful sheep. The other two I spun from yarns from Orkney and represent the beautiful colors of the land. The brown at both ends is from North Ronaldsay Sheep which mainly eat seaweed —had to get some of that— and the variegated is dyed roving from “The Little Orkney Dye Shed”. It was magic to spin.
LAZY DAYS AT THE BEACH!
