The Colors of Life

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

I'm continually intrigued by colors in nature. I use fiber techniques to weave the patterns and textures - and colors - that I see in nature.
The image in my blog title is one I took in Hawaii of lava - as it cools, it attains the different colors and they're in 'rainbow' order. That piece of lava is actually about 4 inches wide - it's tiny!
Below is the Inkle band I wove in response to the colors in the lava:

The lava ia amazing and I had to keep going - here's an Inkle Rope that I wove in response to this other type of lava:

The rope-y strands in the texture of the lava led me to do this project.

Here's what that piece of lava looked like:

Madame Pele and Mother Nature are amazing!
