Morgan-hale_process

Morgan works on a traditional floor loom, and starting a piece, even a small one, is in and of itself a process. When winding a warp onto the loom, each thread must be looped around the back beam, through a heddle and again through the reed, over and over for the width of the entire piece. Only when those threads are properly in place, does the actual weaving begin. Morgan’s studio space overlooks Golden Gate Park, and the everchanging landscape makes its way into her color palette: the blues of the sky and neutral tones of the fog inform many of her compositions. The process, her materials and her finished products are all natural, and once finished, every bit of fabric has an organic feel—a human touch embedded in how pristine it looks.
