Week of 5 September

While weaving does not constitute a large part of my practice last weeks sample suggested a return to a very simple loom. A square frame with nails hammered in at two opposite ends. I choose not to put the nails in evenly.

Here are some pieces worked on the loom. I’m interested to recreate some of the broken grids that were evident in the building demolition I’ve been watching for the past few months..



Amazing paper sculptures

A series of wonderful paper sculptures that have been appearing, anonymously, in Edinburgh in recent times (from March 2011 up to August 2011 so far). Check the story out here.

Late August

This piece was worked in two phases. The first the section at the top where I’ve used a basic grid structure. The second I did the base stiches as “stitch in the dark” and then came back and wove into them.
