Raspberry Coulis

Current Warp

I am working on this red warp that is making me hungry! It is tapping into my obsession with Top Chef, which is doing a dessert series right now, so I have named this warp Raspberry Coulis.

Work in Progress by Bhakti Ziek

It is amazing how many colors I can get out this warp and four wefts (blue, yellow, tan, and white). This is the first time I have had tension problems on the TC1, compounded by the fact that not all the wefts are the same size, and some of the structures bring two wefts to the surface and some bring one to the surface. I think the distortion is interesting, something I might want to explore this winter to see if I can control it and do it on purpose, but I am not sure how I feel about it in this piece. Well, have to finish it before I can judge.
