Fuzzy Sunset

This chenille hanging (110 x 95cms) was inspired by some of the intense sunsets we get here in Kerry.  I made the metres and metres of wool chenille on the loom first, a painstaking process, blending the colours as I wove.  Then used that cut chenille to weave the finished piece.  It is hard to depict in a photo how rich and tactile the piece is.  Well worth the effort.  It has a woven channel at the top through which runs a strong wooden pole for hanging.
