Project Description

We don’t see many rib-stitched pieces, especially a pictorial motif like Cristelia’s colorful Trogons in swinging ferns. A rib stitch is the style of weaving that emphasized the internal coil, so the outside of the piece looks like corduroy and has a bumpy feel.  The weaver creates a look of roundness through the edges of a coil overlapping a coil, and this task of making a rounded bird belly actually look rounded, takes a special skill.

Cristelia’s birds each display unique decorations: red and green, purple and orange, blue and tan, each each perched on a twig that grows from the open colorful flower at the base. Her tan branches and waving fern leaves are all outlined in a think black line to help then stand out.
