Happy 2015 to you all.
Its really interesting to research a summary of the weaving which happens during the year.
This past year, 2014, my records tell me I wove 67 articles, mostly blankets and scarves
with a little sidetrack into tableware. Below is a selection of photos of some of the articles.
|Kowhai blanket, a new colour exploration for me.|
|Summer and Winter table mats.|
Several sets of mats and runners gifted to family members.
|37 blankets in total this year.|
My favourite piece this year.
Shibori using the same summer and winter threading as the table mats but the treadling altered.
|Displayed and sold at Tauranga Creative Fibre Exhibition.|
|More shibori as above. Unbelievable they could be woven on the same threading!|
I was commissioned to make a series of Scarves for Men by Inspirit gallery. Below a couple of examples.
|Navy and white.|
|Brown and taupe.|
There was quite a lot of experimentation with 4 colour double weave.
|Tangerine Dream, winner of Design Award at Creative Fibre Experience exhibition.|
|Chromatic Reflections, third prize at Waikino Exhibition|
|Pohutukawa blanket commissioned by Inspirit Gallery.|
|Series of cotton scarves all from the same warp using an interleaved threading and different treadlings.|
|Speaker cloth for retro sound systems.|
Hope you've enjoyed seeing this summary as much as I enjoyed making each and every piece.
Look out for one on knitted projects soon.
