Iris Dances Iris 4: Iris Dances

Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
15  by 21 inches

This tapestry also I wove sideways (from what is now the left side), easing the long wefts that now appear vertical. This technique resembles the wedgeweave of Iris 3, but here the blocks of stripes are woven at varying lengths and angles, making for a freedom of movement in the piece that pleases me greatly. The blossoms are woven in the vertical stripe, or raised outline, mode of Iris 2, but  more freely,  the dark and light wefts shifting in a checkerboard pattern.
