Wind in Progress Inspiration for Wind was developed through watercolour sketches. Dye is painted onto the bundles of white threads laid out on a table. Once the whole area is painted with dye, as below, the threads are steamed to set the dye. After the excess dye is washed out, the threads are put on a loom and woven into cloth. The weaving process shifts individual threads adding an unexpected life into the final piece.
