SOLD Crystal / Two Grey Hills : Historic : GHT 762
Before we discuss the incredible design in this piece of art, take a look a the quality of wool with which this piece was created.
Woven in 1915 in the Two Grey Hills area, this piece was woven from hand-carded and hand-spun native Churro wool. In this instance, the wool would have been spun several times to so that it would be tight, fine, and consistent in thread size.
To appreciate all of the time and work that goes into a piece of woven art that has been hand-carded and hand spun, please watch this youtube video which shows Master Weaver Clara Sherman carding and spinning wool. It was filmed in 2009 and is such a blessing to demonstrate the ways of the Navajo weaver. When done by hand, the preparation of the wool can take months before it ever touches the loom.
Close your eyes. Can you see this piece on a wall in your home or office? If so, you may have been chosen to be this weaving's forever home. Let us help this vision become a reality.
