This piece was first woven in all white and then I painted on forty-five colors using the process of percentage gradation dyeing. After the piece was rinsed and dried I unwove the weft and retied it on my loom. Then I wove it with a beautiful silver gray color. This was made with 100% tencel yarn woven with a wave pattern. This would be beautiful on a open wall in a living room and a stairwell. This could also bring color and visual peace to an office.
With installing this, I first measure 2 " from the wall to hang any of my panels. I believe it is best for the woven panels to have some breathing room and not be hung straight up on the wall like a painting.
There is a 2" sleeve at the top and bottom of each panel where a 1/4" round metal rod is placed. The panel is then hung from the ceiling using screw hooks and small monofilament fishing line strung through the top of each panel two inches from both ends. The monofilament is strung through the panel and under the metal rod. It is best to have two separate pieces of monofilament each attached to its own hook instead of one piece of monofilament and or one hook. This creates an unbalanced teater totter affect.
The metal rod placed through the sleeve at the bottom gives the woven panel some tension. After installing it is best to steam iron if you see any wrinkles.
Size: 35"wide by 64" long
