I have been enjoying weaving “nest-like” shapes from plant materials I find while on my walks. I use the “random weave” technique, which has no pattern or formula that can be repeated or reproduced. As the weaving progresses, they become the 3-D versions of the graphite nest drawings I have worked on previously. The fibers are like the drawn line, varying in thickness and thinness, straight or twisting, loose and tight, all in a maze of interconnectedness.

Below are some completed nests made out of: grasses, lichen, orange roots, and vines
