"Sister One" (handwoven tapestry; 42cm x 90cm; 2020)
Hello! My name is "Sister One" and I measure 42cm x 90cm. I was created in 2020 alongside "Sister Two". I am made of cotton rope and cord, merino wool yarn and roving, cotton thread and yarn and OOAK In The Ply handspun yarn.
This piece sat side-by-side on my big loom with "Sister Two" for months through a slow and methodical creation process. I wanted to create a set of tapestries that played off one another - incorporating similar elements but in complementary colours and textures. I felt comforted by the colour palette I chose for this piece, with a lot of natural whites and blues. The tapestries would be happy to stay together and hang out, if you are looking to adopt both. Please see the separate listing for "Sister One" for details.
My tapestries are one of a kind and woven on my own handcrafted, maple looms (also for sale in my shop) in my 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.
