In the American southwest the importance of water, now and into the distant past, is not only a necessity, it is part of the very fibers of culture. Indigenous peoples who have farmed the land for centuries must now fight for the right to use what had been always theirs: water to irrigate their bean fields and other crops. This piece is a reflection of water running into brown, parched fields via historic irrigation ditches; let us not lose sight of the rights of those who came before us.
This piece is wet felted using blue faced Leicester; top merino roving; yarns spun from cashmere, alpaca, and merino; and Teeswater lamb lock accents.
