   COLOR & WEAVE
 
   In these most recent weavings, I explore
   interactions between color, design and weaving
   techniques that take advantage of some special
   capacities of the loom. 
Navajo twill is a
   seemingly magical arrangement of the loom that
   produces diagonal lines, zigzags, and
  diamonds--either alternatively or in
  combination--for background patterns to other
  tapestry techniques (see "Estuary," "Night Life,"
  and "Earth Air Fire Water" for flamboyant
  examples, "Bright Earth" and "Red Squared" for
  more controlled geometries).
 With wedgeweave,
  bands of weft angled alternately left and right
  impart their own life and energy to any design
 ("Dance to the  Music" and "Red Arrow"  ).
