SOLD Color Study II - Rag Tapestry - Reds-Greens Mixed Fibers & Turquoise Stones
SPECIAL ORDERS AVAILABLE in your own colors and size, from your own family fabric memories.
"Color Study II" - Rag tapestry, based on the rug weaving workshop at Fort Lewis College in Durango.
Rich reds, greens, and a dash of pale aqua, all in different weights and textures, with Turquoise from top to bottom. This tapestry included cotton, wool blend, polyester and rayon fiber (rags) similar to Color Study I, but added some large polished Turquoise beads at the bottom, as well as "A River Runs Through It" string of small turquoise stones in the lower third of the tapestry. A ruffle made from a girl's cotton blouse, with a large Turquoise bead, adds texture at the top. Braided fringe at bottom, with stitched hem at top to hold a strong wooden dowel for hanging.
Altogether a fun piece to weave, amplifying and embellishing some of the techniques from the original Color Study I.
Custom Orders are welcomed, particularly when we can work together with family fabrics and personal relics to tell a story about a person or special event. Prices determined by size and complexity of the work.
See "Color Study I" in my shop listings for stories and special tapestry ideas.
