Cedar, copper, merino, mohair, silk, stoneware, wool
An abstract atypical weaving form, Dreaming go the Pacific North West Coast is an emotional piece. The blues and greens are reminiscent of oceans and forest. The cedar and ceramics provide colour and textural contrast. Undulating, flowing, it has the feel of dreams traveling like water. Rather than being woven fully throughout, much of the warp is left loose, wandering hither and thither. Textures collide in this love song to a place missed. It speaks to ideals, to pristine waters and old growth trees. It exists like a childhood memory, perfectly happy and uncomplicated—free to be its own unique self. The work flows in a linear fashion, but there are no resolutions, only loose ends, multiple starts and finishes. It pleads for the vitality and beauty of nature, it asks that such bounty and wonder not be destroyed.
