My artwork celebrates the esoteric way of hand-weaving, supported by the Slow Craft Movement, and seeks to connect the public with the beauty and function of handmade art and its creators. I weave both on and off-loom, using traditional Western and Eastern techniques and patterns showcased in time-intensive hand-woven basketry, sculpture, and loom-woven wearable and domestic art.
SAORI Song Teaching Studio is one of 21 Japanese certified SAORI studios in North America. Here, I facilitate collective inquiry learning experiences in spontaneous expression on the loom, for people of all abilities. With an unlimited palette of sustainable fiber textures and colors, the SAORI practice elicits personal creative process with no preconceived pattern or structure. Coupled with a philosophy of no rules or restrictions, individual art is expressed with complete freedom and creativity. Aesthetic principles of asymmetry, simplicity, and wabi-sabi, fused with whimsical deconstruction in design and process are joyful and identifiable statements within each piece. For more info visit:
