Having returned to weaving after a long absence, I find myself drawn to traditional patterns and natural materials. It is interesting how simple mathematics can produce such a convincing illusion of 3-dimensions--not surprising, I guess, since the first practical idea of the computer came from weaving.

The pattern in this piece is called: "The Blooming Leaf of Mexico". It is an example of the overshot weaving technique using Churro wool from New Mexico and hand-dyed wool from Lancaster sheep.
