Sumac series, 2016
17x17" cotton pillow
The grey/purple color comes from Staghorn Sumac, a shrub native to the north-eastern US. It is an important plant for erosion control as well as a habitat and food source for many insects and animals. Each skein of weft yarn was dip-dyed in a bath of locally harvested sumac. The resulting pattern on the pillow comes from the interaction of the loom width and the length between dyed areas. Like every individual season in the life of a plant, each pillow is unique. An exposed selvedge reveals the hand of the weaver.
