Dawn celebrates the joyful process of creating one-of-a-kind woven and sculptural pieces for home, public and personal adornment. As a Saori weaver based in Chapel Hill, she utilizes Japanese floor looms to create contemporary textural free-form pieces. Influenced by Eastern culture, design elements of asymmetry, randomness, simplicity, whimsical deconstruction and wabi-sabi are joyful and identifiable statements in her pieces. Each of Dawn’s woven pieces is created on the Saori loom without a particular outcome in mind, allowing for spontaneity and free-form creativity. Sustainable fibers used in her pieces include: linen, silk, bamboo, wool, alpaca, tencel, cotton, hemp and sugarcane as well as metals, paper, 16mm film, found, natural and recycled materials.
Dawn’s sculptural and photographic pieces are inspired by both the natural and social world, and are often blended together. She utilizes copper, mixed metals, rock, wood, reed, natural and photographic print materials in their creation. Whether suspended from above, hung for display, or worn as an adornment, the process of free-form creativity is the guiding force of Dawn’s art.
