Hand woven on a knitter's loom, this wall hanging is my textile depiction of the sea off Corfu, based on a photo taken when we were on holiday there some years ago.
Using a variety of yarns, ribbons and threads I've recreated the beach with the surf rolling in, and the beautiful, sun-gilt blues and greens of the Mediterranean under a cloudless summer sky. Hints of metallic gold sparkle on the beach and in the water's edge, and tiny glass beads give the illusion of droplets flung up by the surf. The vertical, cream warp threads have been knotted into a fringe at the bottom of the hanging.
The weaving is backed with white sew in interfacing for stability, and has been mounted onto a piece of driftwood. I've added a plaited thread hanger, finished with toning beads to echo the blue of the sky and gold of the beach.
The hanging measures approximately 50 cm long from the top of the driftwood hanger to the bottom off the fringe, and the driftwood hanger is approximately 46 cm wide.
This one of a kind textile piece should be hung out of direct sunlight in order to avoid fading.
