From the Same Cloth
I was introduced to the double weave process at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Tennessee in the summer of 2016 under the instruction of Erika Hanson. This is a versatile technique that allows me to weave two separate cloths at the same time. These two cloths can also be joined on one or both edges with the possibility of opening for twice the width or for weaving a tube. I am still a beginner with this. I am interested in exploring double weave and whole cloth processes that may suggest some of the glorious paradoxes of the Christian faith.
I also enjoy creating visual imagery for interesting or amazing factoids about our natural world, often becoming visual puns.
A Cord of Three Strands
My quilted weavings are my responses to the lingual into a visual imagery. These are taken from Ecclesiates 4:12. "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
