Tender sacred heart
A heart can be soft and open, yet still full of fire.
Handwoven fiber sculpture, a meditation on the heart.
Over the years I've pulled myself away from making wearable creations just a few times to make things to adorn the home. This piece was finished a number of years ago and has been residing in Desert Archaic gallery until now.
This piece blends handwoven elements, hand-dyed raw silk appliqué, felted sculpture and beadwork on a hand made wooden frame. The foundational weaving was woven with both a warp and weft of organic cotton-linen. Into this was woven a piece of raw silk handwoven fabric, created on a different loom. The heart itself was felted of merino wool, the swirling beadwork that cradles and surrounds it was done using antique 'white heart' glass trade beads.
The measurements of this piece are 15 in. (38cm) tall x 11.5 in. (29 cm) wide x 3.5 in. (9 cm) deep
Made with love
