    About The Work

    John Muir once said "the clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness". The universe and nature, both foundations within my studio practice, mirrored with my relationship with the Navajo weavers of the southwest, resulted in the creation of this series.

    Four weavings were created in response to the time I spent weaving with the Navajo weavers of the Southwest. Over two years of research and time spent weaving with the Navajo went into learning an incredibly rare Navajo weaving technique which was applied to these weavings. Keeping in mind the oral traditions and history of Navajo weaving, these pieces are a reflection of my studio practice and the incredibly detailed aspects of the Navajo weaving processes.

    Hand woven from 100% hand dyed and spun Navajo wool. The orange is hand dyed from wild carrot found in the desert of New Mexico. This style of Navajo weaving takes twice as long as the standard weaving techniques I work with. Wooden frame made by wood worker Alek Julian from unfinished, kiln-dried Doug Fir. Each piece is 9'' x 12'' and is ready to hang.
