I created this piece during my final days in Dublin, Ireland after a long residency on the Burren coast in County Clare. This tapestry was created by using a portable frame loom of my own design, and woven to expose the intimacy of the threads. Natural color was extracted from the madder dye plant to stain the silk raffia, as well as synthetic orange and new green dye was used for the cotton twist.
