Description

Original ideas for tapestries in the techniques of double weave, inlay, and pattern weave are detailed in engaging text and illustrated by over 90 beautiful color photos displaying the completed tapestries. This captivating book also details stories of the competitive/collaborative nature of commissions integral to the creation of many tapestries. The story begins with the artist’s work at Cranbrook Academy of Art. It continues with her work in Portland, Oregon, where it was embraced by art consultants, galleries, and collectors. This fascinating journey chronicles one artist’s long career through gorgeous tapestries and their histories, organized in chronological order. Each tapestry displayed presents a seminal idea of the artist and, as she states, “… a finished tapestry illuminates daily existence and is a part of the on-going chronicle of how design ideas are conceived and executed.”
