Comet in the Night Sky

Comet in the Night Sky, 3” x 5”, 2008
Woven Tapestry, Wool and Cotton

This tapestry design was taken from a section of a stained glass window made by the artist in 2005. The window is three overlapping layers of a pinwheel tile pattern. The transition to a tapestry in wool involved moving the pinwheel geometries to one layer and attempting to retain the transparency. The lines of the geometry are extended into the aluminum mat out to the frame to highlight the definition of the blocks.

Thanks for the encouragement. You did get me thinking Sue about space with some of your suggestions. I thought the science angle and the space refernce fit rather well. Thanks!
