Goose Cove Looms

Fran Osten

My work is inspired by the New England landscape and the ever-changing ocean cove immediately outside my studio.  I work on multi-shaft looms, including a computerized dobby loom that allows me to escape the orthogonal grid on which much traditional weaving is based. Color and a sense of movement are important to my designs. Using primarily silk, cotton and Tencel yarns which are hand-dyed, I create wearables and other handwoven pieces that display great depth and richness.  Each piece is one of a kind.
