Roaming—Wave Catching Warp

 Drift wood, Ocean Rocks, Wool from seafaring sheep

The piece Roaming is a meditation on movement, travel and constrainment.

It is a weaving within a warp weight Loom—a traditional loom used through Europe and the middle east for over a thousand years. The loom is made of drift wood and ocean pebbles, the wool is from seafaring sheep. The materials came from a wayfaring, nomadic lifestyle. They moved in slow continuous ways. This movement is mimicked in the weave structure.

All this wandering is now caught, still silenced. The traditional hand methods are also bound. The nomadic way of life is no longer possible with borders.
