For over 30 years I have been weaving on an inkle loom. This type of loom makes narrow pieces, no more than 6” in width. Within this narrow constraint, there are endless possibilities for combining colors into patterns.
My idea in creating a woven piece is that it should be both functional and beautiful. I have created many types of useful everyday items including: shoelaces, scarves, belts, bags, clothing trim, dog leashes, straps for cameras, guitars and other instruments and many costume pieces.
In February of 2012 I did this 30 minute television interview on theshow "Darlene Carman Presents" which airs on San Jose Public TV. You can watch it here on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMUAwRSouGM Darlene and her husband gave me the opportunity to show off many of my woven items and talk about what inspires me and the type of things I like to create.
An article I wrote for CNCHnet, the online magazine for the Conference of Northern California Handweavers
