I first float paints on the surface of a tray of water. Then I pull combs through the water to move the paints into intricate patterns. Finally, I lay a sheet of silk on the water to absorb the floating design. Each piece I Marble is one of a kind due to the nature of the process.
For each piece, we start with white yarn and dye our colors using natural plant materials. The yarn is skeined, mordanted, dyed, balled and warped in preparation for weaving. Then the yarn is threaded onto the loom and woven into different patterns.
