panel works

One of the the most interesting projects happening in connection with the studio right now is actually being executed by a group of weavers located in various locations across the country.  Sheila Shanti, our head weaver who is based in Maine, has spent the last few months making countless samples to test out a huge array of options in color,  fiber,  and weaving technique.

By now I’ve accumulated an amazing library of test strips in all sorts of wools, cottons and linens.  The final products will be at least four different series of “panels” –  elemental forms that have the ability to slip between functional categories and social roles depending on subtle contextual shirts or overlaying value systems.    Curious?    More soon…
