Thebigone











As well as the lith which you can see in earlier photos, I am working on a large monolith, which will also be placed outside, initially in a garden space adjacent to the gallery for the end-of-year show, but then alongside the Whitelands Track for a few months. It is 3m in circumference and 2.5m high. The ring loom was specially built by Paul, who used to build oil rigs before he came to West Dean. The technical support here is the best I have ever known! Here are some pictures of the four panels I have woven so far. The wool yarns (which are blended with silk and linen ones) are some which are left from when the Henry Moore tapestries were woven here in the professional studio (westdean.org.uk/tapestry). I have a link to Henry Moore; how cool is that?
