to share. This is a photo of me with Widi, a young woman who sold us some ikat sarongs. I gave her a Woven Voices prayer flag. What a beautiful smile!!
Please be patient, I will get back to folks as best I can given the upset to my home/studio. And I promise more stories and photos from Indonesia!

This month I have the incredible good fortune to be traveling to Bali in Indonesia. My husband and I have old friends who live in Bali part of the year and we will be visiting them for a bit over two weeks.
We hope to visit several Hindu temples, cultural sites, traditional weaving workshops, as well as snorkel and relax!
STUDIO NEWS ~~ Earlier this month I completed a small commission of a ministerial stole for a friend who is being ordained. I hand dyed and wove the line/rayon fabric.
She collected prayers on paper that was later twisted into thread. I couched the thread onto the sewn stole, and tah dah!
OverNight Art Projects. Today it was installed. The piece is called "Caught Between US" and is made from recycled fish and shrimp netting, rope, mono-filament, shrimp replacement lures and measures 22' by 10'.
It was inspired by the Piscataqua River that separates Maine from New Hampshire. The piece pays homage to the men and women who work on the Piscataqua River, the marine life that inhabits these waters and the Memorial Bridge, which connects the Seacoast communities.
The title "Caught Between Us" evokes the uncertain future of the Memorial Bridge as well as the fragility of the marine environment. This piece was ironically conceived prior to the catastrophic environmental disaster that is continuing to unfold in the Gulf of Mexico.
So hang on to those orders and questions.
I will be back on June 20th.
Until then, as they say in Bali ~~ Sampai jumpa lagi
See you later!
