Every woven piece tells a story. I re-investigate historical patterns found in traditional guernsey sweaters (fisherman's sweater) and also colloquial woven patterns. We often forget or disregard the origin and significance behind each pattern. With salmon skins, I endeavour to get the viewer to take notice of the pattern and become reacquainted with their stories.
The size of each woven piece is dictated by the size of the skin used.
