loom weight

My 3,000 year old Ancient Greek loom weight ( a Christmas present!) now hangs in my studio next to a strip of fabric woven with cone dyed paper yarn.

The whole cone is placed in a dye bath with the intention that as the yarn is woven the colour gradually leaches out.

This incremental progression makes a kind of journey as the yarn travels from one end of a piece of cloth to the other.
