West Diamond Woven-Photo 21x29
This new woven piece is one I'm super proud of. I love the complex patterning and the mix of busy and negative spaces. I used a diamond pattern while weaving this piece, this is one of my favorite styles to weave with because within the patterning there is a very clear focal point and the pattern radiates out from there. I love the effect. Coincidentally, or not, this image was shot on West Diamond street in North Philadelphia. So a diamond pattern for an image shot on Diamond street was fitting.
After shooting the photograph and making prints, I meticulously hand cut the actual paper print into strips. I then, carefully interweave the strips of photograph back together in something similar to a basket weave. Once the image is woven back together its textural and layered. Once I finish this part its time to make a frame for the piece. I make all the frames I use by hand. First, I start with long wooden boards that I cut down to size. I then glue all the wooden pieces together and then I stain the frame with a few coats of clear stain for a finished look and its ready to hang. I use acid free paper and inks while making these and the total sizer of this framed work is 21x29. Each framed woven piece comes with a framing wire, real glass, and ships via FedEx for $35 in the US, $75 international. A tracking number is provided.
