ikat studies

ikat studiesCollageI’ve been playing around with a densely sett cotton warp. It’s only three inches wide but very long so I can try a lot of little things with a straight tabby tie-up. First up are these three little painted warp studies. I’m liking how the tight warp sett creates a soft, pale image. The upper right images show how the block print translated into a woven piece. I think these will work really well on a larger scale.
