My big loom

This is my big tapestry loom. It was a gift from my mother in law (she did tapestry few years ago, and  the loom was useless). For now it is in my studio (as you can see) with sewing machines and more stuff. Even if it will be in a special room just for it soon, I wanted to show it

Normaly the threads are separated with nails, but I think is also a good idea to use a tape measure to warp it correctly. You just have to follow how many threads / cm.

IMG_20140903_090353This is an example* woven in that loom. I work by behind, (it’s easier to pick up an to leave threads) obtaining a cleaner front, at the beging is hard to see the mirror in front, because you have all the warp between. But eyes are wise and soon you get used.

*soon I will make a post about this project, inspiration an results.

b3And this is the project that I’m doing right now. As you can see I’m working in a monochromatic effect, to give importance to the texture. It is inspired by a Turner’s watercolour. I wish to finish it this month.

Happy thursday everybody!

Small stuff I like to make

I think the objects that surround us every day have the power of influence us little by little up to be like them. We are what we eat, and I would add; and what we have between our hands.

So we have to choose well what we introduce into our lives for their qualities and what they transmit, as well as an act of responsibility towards the consume. In my opinion, of course.

Crec que els objectes que ens rodegen tots els dies ens influeixen i ens hi acabem assemblant; ens tornem com ells són, igual que som el que mengem, també som allò que vestim i ens acompanya dia rere dia.

Per això hem de triar bé què introduïm en les nostres vides per les seves qualitats i pel que ens transmeten, i també com un acte de responsabilitat vers el consum. En la meva opinió, es clar :)
