Rye Lane

Behind Rye Lane to the multi-story car park, look at the brickwork, structure, layers and shifting tones. I used an 'end on end' silk warp to make micro interpretations of the patterns in the structure. I also used combinations of yarns in the weft to give movement and direction to the cloth. The silk was a pleasure to weave, and was interesting to watch it gather up and mutate in hot water because of the slightly elasticated orange yarn I had used in some of the swatches.
