Starting with some photos (all by Michael Stadler) of work I’ve done in recent times. These are unusual (in the weaving world) views of handwoven pieces, which is what we’ve been aiming for. The idea is to show in two dimensions the character of the fabric (which is three dimensional). What do you think? Does it work?
Those two are from the Lava Flow series — large shawls, of shimmery yarns.
Below is an intimate view of the two Berries and Cream shawls, both of hand-dyed rayon and tencel. They’re light and airy.
Now we have another close-up, this time of Salt Water Taffy ~
And finally, Indigo Bunting, a large, highly textured shawl that drapes and swings most satisfactorily.
Now here’s the “undone” part — the warp chain for the next series of scarves to be woven on Sally, already named the “Precious Metals” series. There will be four of them, they’ll be exceptionally lustrous because this warp is 100% hand-dyed rayon, and all the weft yarns will be tencel.
