Jacquard: Squam

These are some Jacquard fabrics that were created from photographs of Great Island in the early morning. First I photographed, then painted and drew.  I scanned the drawings into the computer and then created six end satin weaves from this.  It is an end on end warp and at that time, at Rhode Island School of Design, the loom was new and Phil, the operator, would allow us to bring as many yarns as we wanted so I had twelve weave structures to play with and unlimited yarn mixing.  It is an end on end black white upholstery warp and it is a 27 inch repeat, so will work for upholstery.

More of my Jacquard collections can be found here.
