"Light in the Darkness" (handwoven tapestry; 50cm x 53cm; 2018)
Hello! My name is "Light in the Darkness" and I was created in late 2018. I measure a perfect 50cm x 53cm. I am made of mohair locks, tinsel, sequins, pencil and regular wool roving, worsted weight to bulky yarn (cotton, blue-faced Leicester wool, cashmere) and as many different weaving techniques as can be squeezed into one tapestry.
I am a little surprising and some of your guests may step up really close to have a look at my varied colours, textures and (even) sequins!
I will look best on a wall that's not too big, and hopefully in a place where not too many hands will want to reach out and touch me. But regardless of where you choose to hang me, I look forward to being the best-looking piece of art in the room!
My tapestries are one of a kind and woven on my own handcrafted, maple looms (also for sale in my Etsy shop) in my studio/home in Ottawa. Each piece is lovingly created with attention to the smallest details. If you like elements of this piece, but want to talk to me about a custom commission, please reach out to me.
