Doerte Weber

“I am a structural weaver using diverse, modern materials with old traditional patterns. At the most elemental level, weaving consists of warp and weft, each running in a separate direction but intertwined. Lately, I have worked either with bast fibers, sticks, metal heddles or plastic wrappers in my art weavings. Leaving open dents in the reed while setting the warp achieves an even higher transparency. When hung on the wall, light shining through it creates beautiful shadows.”
