Two of my Creations at the O’Hanlon and I’m Off on Another trip to Japan

I’m pleased that my newest art weaving got into the O’Hanlon Art Gallery textile exhibit. I worked hard to make this art piece out of an experiment. It’s mainly a double weave tube that is split into two layers at the top. I wove it when I was weaving with fine silk threads at about 100 ends per inch.


Here’s a side view. The piece is attached to the background with a button holding. The  monofilament loop. It took a lot of planning to figure out how to present it. I covered plexiglass tubes with white felt then sewed the cloth to the felt. The background is a handwoven scarf from the Philippines. All the work was so it could be hung against a wall. My original idea was for it to hang in space.


ANOTHER TRIP TO JAPAN TO SEE TEXTILES!
I’m on my way to Japan. It’s a textile tour with a group from Australia with Valerie Kirk. What a relief to be on the way to the airport now!!

  1. Dear Peggy,
    This weaving is brilliantly conceived and visually stunning. Congratulation and I can’t wait to see what you’re up to next.
    I studied with you years ago, and while I haven’t continued to create weavings with traditional techniques the background you offered shows through in the art that I do.
    Warmest and best wishes to you.

  4. Wow, that’s so exciting that you’re off to Japan for a textile tour! I bet you’ll see some amazing things. While you’re there, you absolutely have to try some sushi. Japan is known for having some of the freshest and most delicious sushi in the world.
