The ‘Woven in Light’ series is inspired by my grandmother’s weaving. I grew up in Auckland and my granny lived on Frederick Street in Hillsborough – a street which runs along the cliff above Hillsborough Bay (funnily enough, the next bay around is called “grannys Bay”). My gran had a very large floor loom that she made blankets, throws, wall hangings, table mats and all sorts on – and as a little girl I thought it was all pretty magical! Her loom was based in a large shed in her garden – which was also a work of art with pathways that wound their way down towards the cliff. All of my extended family have items woven by Gran and they are very treasured pieces.
