Wall Hanging 'Squall'
Created to emulate the swirling winds and blinding white-out conditions of a snow storm, this hand-woven wall hanging was made entirely with handspun, natural, undyed yarn. Each strand was individually draped by hand to create the perfect sense of balance and barely restrained chaos. It is hanging on a hand-sanded oak dowel, suspended by a piece of deerskin leather.
Materials: deerskin, leather, oak, yarn, fiber, threads, wood, linen, cotton, wool, mull, weaving, mohair
