Part of me doesn’t understand how this round woven wall hanging hasn’t been scooped up, the other part is okay getting to have more time with it! But really, it’s one of my favorites, it’s super fluffy, it has hand picked driftwood, leather, @lovefestfibers indigo fiber and @niromastudio cookies and cream cotton. What are you even waiting for?! It’s in the shop now, link in profile.
(Or head over to @atomic_furnishing and grab the entire setup, @emilyjamisonart painting too!)
After this 4 ft. piece sold I put a poll up in stories seeing whether y’all thought I should have “more neutrals!” or “bring on the color” with the next big pieces. I couldn’t believe how close the decision was! I guess I’ll have to make some each.
If you didn’t get to answer the poll, let me know in the comments - do you want to see the next few large weavings packed with color or should we keep it neutral?
We are so proud of our principal Cassandra Chilton and her work with the @hothamstreetladies for their winning submission to the Tapestry Design Prize for Architects 2018 ・・・
Deep within the submerged base of Newton’s Cenotaph, and obscured in the shadowy nether regions of the subterranean colonnade the secret sect of Diana of Ephesus continued at their needle work.
Cast aside they railed against Etienne-Louis Boullee’s sphere as an absolute and perfect symbol of Male Reason. There was no place for them or their practice in Boullee’s cult architecture, its principles promoting the total absence of ornament and other.
They conceived of a work that would blow this male fantasy apart. A resplendent and richly textured tapestry- when joined at the seams would shroud the geometric purity of the sphere with a riotous and highly decorative display.
A depiction of their hidden grottos, each containing the female deities, to which they worshipped, would be revealed, enveloping Newton’s Cenotaph with potent symbols of female fertility and fecundity. #austapestry#australiantapestryworkshop#tdpa2018#tapestry#contemporaryart#tapestryweaving#weaving#architecture#melbourne#melbournearchitecture#mona#monamuseum#boullee#poparchitecture#hothamstreetladies#sphere#chaosandfertility

A piece inspired by my love for Navajo pottery. I wanted to challenge myself to weave an actual object. This tapestry turned out just like what I sketched in my book. Handwoven Navajo Churro Wool+Cholla Cactus Wood hanger. NFS #tapestry
