Blue Zapotec 2


While Mar has been learning to work with the new floor loom, John has been working on his next weaving, which is Zapotec inspired like the last one, but much longer and with a very energetic design with three complete motifs instead of a single central one.


As time goes on and the design grows up the warp, the inevitable challenges arise.  The motifs are growing too fast; there won’t be room for the entire design.  Adjustments must be made.

While the weaver struggles with these issues, the rest of us just look on in amazement at the beautiful image emerging from yarns interlaced.
