Joseph's Coat

24ins x 30ins/61cms x 76cms (hand dyed wools, mohair and cotton weft on cotton warp).
Private Commission


The yarns for this piece were all hand dyed : the weaving was completed over 16 months.
Joseph’s Coat floats above a desert landscape, it’s brightness and variegated texture 
contrasting strongly with the soft muted mohair and cotton backdrop. The brilliant colours ripple and vibrate with energy hinting to the great potential of the missing owner of the coat and the emptiness left by his absence.
