Scarf of 70-micron copper with white spun silk and gray French linen. Pinhead for scale! The area in the photo is less than one inch across. Yikes! I'll be at @katandmaouche for a couple of days with a loom, working on this piece. Come say hi!

I'll be in this swanky show at @katandmaouche curated by @stockpiler
Fiber art is a wonderfully broad category, and I'm excited to see everyone's contributions!

Winding fine linen threads onto my loom. It's wonderfully satisfying to pat them when they're all wound on tight and even. Small pleasures. ☺️
I have two shows coming up, The Gathering of the Guilds at the Convention Center this Fri-Sun, and The Modern Craft of Fiber Art at @katandmaouche and curated by @stockpiler.
Come say hi!

Current thing on the loom. Very fine merino wool thread. I'm cutting these off tonight, and I'll have them at The Gathering of the Guilds this Fri-Sat. Six craft guilds in one giant room at the Convention center. Weavers, potters, beadmakers, woodworkers, metal arts and jewelry, and glassworkers.

What is this? Why is my mother in my studio, and why is there a TV crew filming us? Stay tuned...☺️

I'll be at First Thursday tomorrow, 5:00-10:00. NW 13th between Irving and Johnson. Several blocks are closed off and lined with artist booths. Lots of cool stuff and great people watching!
This is one of my lamps, maple with handwoven hand-dyed linen. Modern and minimalist, with a touch-sensitive dimmer switch, and leds illuminating the cloth from within. I'll have plenty at the show!

Pile of thread, or the inside of my head?

Twisting scarf fringe at the coffee shop. Linen warp, silk weft.

Linen warp with blue wool and stainless steel weft. Really! The steel is 40 microns, half the width of a human hair. I've never been able to photograph it successfully, but it catches the sun, sparkling subtly. Both the warp and weft are very fine, like sewing thread.
This is a prototype for a line of handwoven pocket squares for @wildwoodcompany. The first batch, a creamy silk windowpane, is already available as part of their Kickstarter campaign to launch a line of fine handmade accessories.
Take a look at @wildwoodcompany and follow the link in their bio.
