Peaceweaver’s Web Tapestry


Peaceweaver's Web Tapestry by E. Thor Carlson




The title of the tapestry is from an Icelandic word meaning: mediator for two disputing parties during the annual Icelandic parliament, and the weaver's term, “web”, which is the completed fabric on the loom of both warp and weft threads.

The tapestry was woven in five months (about five hours daily), in triple persian and rug wools on linen warp, 4 double ends per inch. Each section: 36" x 49" Overall: 49" x 108"

First shown at the Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, Massachusetts, in 1995. It has also been shown at the Killian Gallery, Sharon, New Hampshire, 1997; the Dubose and Stowell Galleries in Harpers Ferry, 1999; and the Entler Gallery, Shepherdstown, West Virginia, during the Israeli/Syrian Peace Conference, January of 2000, where the artist was honored by a visit by President Bill Clinton. Also shown at the Library Arts Center, Richards Free Library, Newport, N.H., 2003.

Designed and woven in three sections on a frame loom by E. Thor Carlson © 1995 all rights reserved.
