The third in a series of wall pieces evoking dreams of summer gardens, handwoven in silk and mounted for hanging.
The third in a series of wall pieces evoking dreams of summer gardens. This series of small wall pieces are of handwoven silks, using a colour palette inspired by Monet’s paintings of his garden at Giverny. The weaving evokes the textures and subtle colour shifts seen in summer gardens.
Woven on a 24 shaft loom, the pieces are mounted using mounting board together with a soft supporting lining and finished with a calico backing and picture cord. The piece is stitched into place and no glue or adhesive have been used. The intense blue of irises against the greens of a summer garden is echoed by the colouring in this small piece which measures 15.5cm x 22.4cm.
