Album Description
The Wire Tapestries are created from chenille pipe cleaners that are stained with acrylic paint. They are built with a knotting and weaving system of my own device which allows me to create large and complex images. The tapestry is enriched through a process of drawing patterns and writing stories directly on the fabric.
