A productive day yesterday, about 1/10 of the weaving done. I very much enjoy weaving texture intuitively within a planned framework. Just time to do an hour or so before I teach colour blending later today.
The beginnings of the 3D 'Shrine' (small version) in actual weaving, rather than the, now rather crumpled, paper version. I am working with a continuous warp on the Ashford loom. I have room for it now that I have The Boy's room as a studio, he having kindly moved to his own flat - a proper grown up!
"I like to escape the tyranny of the rectangle and to take tapestry off the wall."
My current practice is a long term enquiry into what it means to be truly human; it involves reflections on Christian and Jewish theology, inspiration from poets such as John Donne, T.S. Eliot, R.S. Thomas, Grace Paley, Dylan Thomas, Yehuda Amichai, Seamus Heaney and Malcolm Guite, together with ponderings on news items.
