19" x 22" Loom weaving is a passion and a promise in my life. My sister-of-the-heart and brilliant engineer Cindy French and I came up with a looming system that allows us to do all sorts of nontraditional things with weaving, and it has been an amazing journey. This piece has encaustic, needle felting, fabric paper, embroidery, crochet and even some traditional weaving, all done on the loom. It also has some of my other great loves, paper and metal. The border on the loomed piece is attached Kumihimo. www.copperloom.com
