soapstone rug




It's always interesting to change the scale. Weave small, then weave large.

Also, I've been the subject of an interview ( ! )
at a wonderful Norwegian blog, in a series of conversations with hand making artists around the world,
I'm amazed to find myself there, and I invite you to take a look.

Gorgeous colours!
So beautiful.

I'm so glad to have emptied that loom. It's such a good loom (Cranbrook, design by LoJa Saarinen in 1930, I believe)

Elizabeth McMurtry said...

These are so, so beautiful! I love your work. I have a dream to have one of these in my home one day...

Victoria said...

Gorgeous, and as always, spot on.

Really beautiful weaving!

Susan said...

Thank you, Elizabeth, Victoria, Patrice, and Mlle.
I appreciate your attention, and I share your obsession with the textile realm. Glad to find I'm in such good company!

The rug is beautiful! Your choice of colors are very country-ish and warm.

Anne said...

Oh my. I've been visiting your blog for a while because I'm so attracted to the simple beauty of your weaving. Your work proves that tried and true natural fibres and a gentle and thoughtful mind far outweigh the number of shafts a loom has. Your talk with Vibeke is required reading for any budding weaver. Congratulations, and may your lovely cloth be enjoyed and admired by many generations ahead.

Wow Susan..... gorgeous! I am such a novice when it comes to the different patterns you weave, twill and tabby and so many more... I wish I could learn to warp a loom like this!

love your rugs from the first sight,

it was interesting to get to know your nordic story in more detail, and about how your weaving story started and about your inspiration and ideas.
