Dancing With Blue Heron

This piece was inspired by the blue heron that visits our pond. The heron's graceful takeoff reminded me of Tai Chi movements.
I wove a selection of fabric and yarn using a rya technique for the body of the garment and knitted the sleeves. The pants are silk and there is a necklace of moonstones around the figure's neck.
This piece was exhibited in the "At Play" exhibit at the Small Gallery of the Valley Artisans Market in Cambridge, NY. It is now in a private collection.
