Virtual SAORI Kai – Post 7

I’m happy to have another contribution to the SAORI Kai. This one from Tanya, who is often inspired by the sea – even though she now lives on the prairies.

The weaving that she sent is called “Ebb and Flow” …

Ebb and Flow

Tanya says:

Working with just the two yarns, back and forth, started to feel like waves…

Please do read her blog post about this weaving at “Sea Weaves“, I’m sure you’ll love seeing more pictures as it develops and her thoughts that develop with it.

It has become a beautiful wall hanging for their new home.

I really love this weaving and all that is – a good reminder! And I’m happy that this Virtual SAORI Kai has prompted Tanya to do another posting to share her work 🙂

    Hi Tanya. You find the best blues and I like the way you mounted the piece on driftwood. How fitting. Enjoyed your Sea Weaves blog and especially appreciated you saying, “I wove without any plan, or looking at it along the way.” To me that is the heart of Saori. Lately, I’ve felt maybe I “should” (ahhh!) design more so your comment helped free me of that weight.

    It’s been great to see your comments and how you see things made by different people – and also how what makes you inspired or have a new insight. That’s what the SAORI Kai is all about!

    Happy Weaving,

    Seeing photos of work while it’s on someone’s loom, in this case Tanya’s, always stirs in me a feeling of being connected to others. The cloth takes on a new energy when released from the loom, and on the loom there is so much of the weaver present.
    The ebbing tide often feels stronger than the in-coming, and in this piece I feel its tug at my feet and legs in the heavily woven sections.
    Today the breeze on my garden and windows is directly off the ocean, so I feel integrated with Tanya’s piece as I write this.
    Thank you for sharing this!

    Thanks for the comments.

    I really love seeing other people weaving – and seeing what their projects look like along the way. 🙂
