Earth Air Fire Water

Stephanie Hoppe Handwoven Rugs



EARTH AIR FIRE WATER

Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
24 by 71 inches, $2,500


The overall twill pattern in this rug is "loom controlled," a Navajo technique that yields a very thick dense textile. I have varied the effects of the patterning, creating the flowing, organic shapes, by changing and manipulatingthe weft colors as I weave.
