One down and another to come

My dyed warp weaving is complete and ready to become the new upholstery fabric on a chair! My next project has less of a practical use but is a piece that interacts with the environment of an interior, playing with light and air this piece will be a finished piece that is an experiment. If it works successfully I will make more like it on a larger scale. I am using a bamboo warp that is spaced on the loom and a copper thread weft (purchased from Habu Textiles). The copper thread is so thin that it is almost impossible to see what I am doing without the right lighting, this piece will be decorative and subtle capturing light and transparency.
