My new commission

Starting a new project it is always exciting, especially when it is a large scale one. I love the format and as many of my works I am weaving it sideways due to the technical issues.
The colours are very contrasting and once again I get to play with all the different textures the materials are offering me.

exploring volumes

Well as you see, since I am just waiting to start my new commission, which I believe will be a large scale tapestry and will demand almost all of my time and thoughts, I am exploring possibilities for adding warp into smal pieces of tapestry.
Miniature scale is always interesting because you can always come up with interesting and different ideas regarding structure, weight, texture, etc. I also enjoy the gradation of colours and textures. These particular pieces have been beautiful to work on since they are bamboo fibre, silk and wool...really nice to touch and pass throught the warp. It is almost like listening to harp and letting the music flow between the spaces.
Miniature format is also good to work because you never know when it would be just a scale proyect for a larger piece!
