Nestling

Long winter snowshoe treks in the woods, empty nests piled high with snow and my own empty nest inspired this piece.  This nest is woven on a birch branch using a variety of yarns, Icelandic sheep wool, and raffia.
  


Inside is nestled a little girl. I think of a nest as a haven and refuge, just as art is a haven and refuge.
