Depth, texture and natural materials guide my work. I set up the loom and invite the yarns to decide how they wish to be woven. In the opening of shed, the kairos moment, when the shuttle passes through the momentary gap in the warp threads, the magic occurs. This moment turns thread into fabric, vertical and horizontal meet, order is fixed, the geometry establishes itself, being is realized. Dwelling through kairos.
Items shown here are either available to purchase and in stock or can be made by commission. For items made by commission please note that identical yarns may no longer be available but similar colours and textures can be sourced for your piece.
Please note that a commissioned work will not look exactly the same as those pictured, because I like variety, spontaneity, individuality and because I'm a human not a machine and I can't make things exactly the same even if I try. Plus I don't want to, each piece is a kairos moment captured.
