Weaving takes patience. Fitting each piece of the warp and weft together is difficult enough in textile, but try it with rigid metal . . . it’s a new challenge. Weaving creates copper art that is inviting, intriguing, unique.

Mike has experimented with the process of weaving with metal. The results are captivating. The most recent piece hangs in Gallery 873 in Kayenta Art Village. It reminds me of an antique fabric that has been worn through the ages, leaving holes and tatters. The negative spaces are openings for wall color and texture to peek through, making the piece unique to a space.

Other pieces he has created are reminiscent of a wave with their gentle curves, free flowing forms that reflect the light with warmth.

Some are tigthly woven and some include local willows in their design. We shared some of their stories here.

Weaving is just one technique, but one very intriguing form that makes copper art a very personal design statment. It speaks to the nature lovers style.
