During the summer of 2023, I participated in the Ós Textile Residency which was hosted by the Icelandic Textile Center in Blönduós, Iceland. My project for the residency was heavily inspired by Iceland's landscape. I wanted to use the idea of Iceland's volcanoes to create a textured piece. I planned to not only do this through weaving but also combine it with loom-knitting. Knitting is commonly used for clothes and decor. I wanted to change that. I wanted to use loom-knitting to experiment with creating the texture of the lava. I planned to use many different weaving techniques within the project as well. I used tabby and soumak. Mixing different tapestry weaving techniques along with attaching loom-knitted pieces created the ideal three-dimensional texture I sought. I enjoyed working with my hands to create my volcano. Due to the recent eruption in Iceland, I felt it would be fitting to name my volcano Litli-Hrútur. I feel it is extremely important to keep the tradition of hand weaving and knitting alive.
