DescriptionThick, heavy woven piece in sky blue and tomato red. The threads are woven around pieces of foam to create small, snake-like raised ridges on the work. The woven pipes vary in size and color, giving the optical illusion of three-dimensional waves. Overall, the piece is abstract and geometric.
