"As a contemporary Chilean fiber artist, I draw inspiration from the rich history and traditions of my home country. Through my work, I seek to honor the legacy of indigenous textile arts, while also bringing a modern perspective to these age-old techniques.
One of the things that set my work apart is my commitment to using only hand-spun yarn in my pieces. This allows me to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces that are full of texture and depth. I love the way that the natural variations in the yarn add to the overall character and personality of my work.
The first step in the process of making the yarn is to acquire the fiber to dye. The wool I use is sourced from Argentina, I like to support farmers from South America, and this way I ensure high-quality and sustainable production.
Once I receive the wool, I dye and mix the fibers to create a gradient and prepare it for spinning.
Using a spinning wheel, I twist the fibers together to create a continuous thread. I spin 8 tones of gray which I will use to create the art, and then finally wash the spun yarn to set the twist.
Once I have the entire gradient of yarn I can start working on the piece of art. I first weave the base that I will use as a canvas, and then I use the gradient of yarn to paint the image using a simple stitch technique.
The unique variations in texture and color that result from hand-spinning add character and depth to the final piece, each one of them is a testament to the time. From sourcing the wool to spinning it into yarn and finally weaving and stitching it into a finished piece, every step of the process is a labor of love"
