Framed Woven Tapestry "Fay 5"Regular price $85.00 Save $-85.00
"Reimagined tapestries woven from yarns donated to me by founding Craft ACT member Fay Skyring. These were thrums of warp yarns from upholstery fabrics she wove for Parliament House in Canberra. I have used them as weft threads in these mini tapestries, exploring the interaction of the different colours she used in three different upholstery fabrics." Lisa Molvig
Materials: Wool weft, cotton warp
Dimensions: 15 x 20cm
About the Maker: Lisa is a full time scientific research technician in the area of plant biotechnology and is a part time artist. Not surprisingly it is nature, mainly plants, that inspire her art. The texture and patterns in nature are translated into either linocut print or tapestry weaving designs.
As a printmaker and weaver my designs are often driven by the materials. Also as a weaver I incorporate non-traditional “yarns” in my work. The hanging ribbons inside clothes have no purpose after they have left their shop displays, so again these are being collected by friends and family to be woven into brooches. They add colour and shine into the woven wool background of tapestry woven brooches.
