As soon as I began weaving on this wonderful base I felt like I was looking down into a deep picture of space. There are such wonderful explosions of color mixed with pits of blackness just as it is in space. As I worked, I knew I could create a reflection as in water, but the desire to cradle this microcosm of galaxy became my driving force, as if to capture and hold it for eternity. The weaving lends itself to swirling gases and the final embellishment of rocks and stones complete the feeling of space’s cast offs.
