What am I working on?
I’ve been creating two new woven map pieces for this open portfolio event. They are not quite finished but will be before Saturday. I started by shredding a map(usually one that I’ve gotten through a National Geographic subscription) and then began to weave the shredded pieces into a new image. After the weaving is complete I hand stamped this image onto the map.
The image reminds me of this photo from our trip to the Natural History Museum in Chicago:
Below is the second piece done in the same manner as the first. I added a combination of my carved stamps and some store bought stamps:
