Color Weave

Fiber Wall Hanging

Created by Cindy Grisdela
"Color Weave" is an exploration of organic curves, enhanced by intricate stitching texture. The large brown curves define the composition, and the background colors of red, blue, green, pink and gold add the spark.

Dense stitching lines add texture with a variety of motifs-fans, pebbles, spirals, square stipples, and seashells. Mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.

Grisdela creates all her work in her studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using her domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just the artist drawing the designs in her head with the machine's needle and thread.

Each piece has the artist's signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.

Care: Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
