Te Tai o Poutini

Handwoven wall hanging        85cm x 93cm          

Hand woven natural and dyed harakeke (NZ flax – phormium tenax)

This piece is inspired by the area of Aotearoa/New Zealand where I live – Te Tai o Poutini o Te Wai Pounamu, the West Coast of the South Island. The blues are the Tasman Sea, the greens, the bush, and the undyed fibres, the beach. Then these overlap. The rough edges represent the ruggedness of the sea, land and coastline.
