I resonate with Rainer Maria Rilke’s statement, “There is nothing so wise as a circle,” and feel very connected to several ancient spiritual traditions when weaving in the round.  While a few of my weavings contain some of the same reflective narrative themes as my etchings, they more often reflect abstract or abstract expressionistic attempts at capturing the energy from specific outer landscapes.  I use a three inch tapestry needle to weave within a circular gold metal frame, using a variety of both hand and commercially spun wool,  cotton, silk and wool blends.
