MINNA’s Weavings with Plenty of Texture and Fringe

Minna - Weaving on Loom

Continuing the trend of textiles this week, we have the weavings of  MINNA, AKA Sara Berks. She weaves various types of fibers on a loom to create wall hangings and art objects.

MINNA’s work is very tactile, using fringe and a variety of yarns. It begs to be touched, especially when she incorporates fringe within the body of the weave. I could see these works existing not only as wall hangings, but as a table runner, made in to pillows, and more. They would also be interesting on a larger scale, too, where she could explore more of pattern-making and material in a totally different way. How does scale change things when it comes MINNA’s sensibilities?
