Gallery 15 - Jennie Parry, England
Takadai Braids

Double Rhythms II
made on the high takadai
using 100 x 70gm bobbins
& 12 pin komas
2/2 oblique twill
(photographed prior to framing between 2 sheets of acrylic for a major travelling exhibition)
I enjoy the curve of the braid structure when both layers of bobbins become one & the different shapes as they divide. This & the earlier Double Rhythms 1 (made with ginger & black silk) almost echo primitive human forms. Detail below.

Jennie can be reached by e-mail.
