TECHNIQUE & ARTISTIC DETAILS

Each of my hand woven textiles is made with careful handwork and attention to form as well as well as function. Attention to detail and commitment to traditional artistry separate my hand woven textiles from many others. I work entirely with traditional hand and foot powered looms, not using computers to guide my patterns or mechanics to power the loom. Each piece is a test and display of knowledge of materials, technical skills, and artisanry.

From the beginning, materials are chosen, the threads are wound to the same length, dressed on the beam of the loom, the pattern is threaded meticulously through the eyes of the heddles and reed one by one and tied up in preparation for weaving. This establishes the base for the fabric, aligning the threads of the warp to create a ground. Planning for size, color, and pattern are established before insertion of the weft filler. Most pieces are hemmed and finished by hand, as well, to create a smooth, refined look.

PRODUCTION & DESIGN

Items are made one-of a kind, or in short runs. Items listed here in my shop are ready for sale as described. I try to provide a sampling of choices within a style until they sell out. I am not a production weaver, and do not wish to make 100s of the same thing. That is the art of the craft! Consider within reason if something really needs to be 1 or 2 inches longer or wider as you browse the items being offered. Use the search button or links within the shop to find similar items, which may be offered in different sections. Please contact me if you cannot find something to suit your needs. Special orders can be placed for specific colors, longer runners, sets of table linens, or larger area rugs.

CARE & USE

Each piece is made to be used and should be cared for as you would any well-crafted tool. Many of my finished items are machine washable, unless noted, and meant to be used every day. Many of the items have been tested over the years by myself and by many of my customers. Again, with attention to care, hand woven textiles will last a long time and bring continued enjoyment, although just as with anything, they may not last forever. Consider textile heirlooms from past generations that are still used today. Well-made and cared-for, these can be heirlooms of the future.

COMMITMENT TO CRAFT

I commit myself to my work with my hands, my heart, and with my time as a full-time professional occupation, not as a hobby. In doing so, I compete with machine-made products to earn a living wage to survive in our current economic climate. Consider these pieces as works of enjoyable, aesthetic art as well as lasting utilitarian, working craft, and you will find the long-term values they carry can far outweigh some of the costs of things in your everyday environment that may be much more temporary or disposable.

Enjoy Artful Living with simple, sophisticated and stylish textiles. Hand woven textiles make unique gifts that give pleasure in the simplest of ways, highlighting holidays, celebrations and special occasions. Treat yourself, or give a gift that keeps on giving. I focus on classic patterns, colors, and textures that will fit in both traditional vintage or modern contemporary lifestyles and d├ęcor. Heirloom home decor furnishings, textiles, table linens & fashion accessories hand woven in natural cotton, linen, wool, alpaca & mohair, will last for years.
