The Yellow Ball Tapestry was handwoven on a back strap loom by Manuela, Luara, Lucera, Antonia, Anacleta, and Joana, K’iche’ speakers, in Sololá, Guatemala. The Ball Tapestries feature a bold black and white striped warp set up that is toned down with a white weft. This striking base cloth sets off exceptionally executed diagonal lines that form a graphic ball which playfully seems to jump off of the stripes. A dueling pattern is created from the negative spaces in between diagonals. The intention of the design is to be bold enough to engage, while the use of the familiar stripe pattern offers the viewer a meditative respite. The threads making up the colorful diagonal lines that create circles are long, floating, brocaded weft threads that create tactile, lively lines that truly show the human hand involved. The construction of the tapestry is risky and exciting, it is a nuanced and highly handmade feast for the eyes-- meant to activate the space in and considered way. The tapestry comes with a simple wooden rod for hanging or this tapestry is suitable for framing.
