Radical change begins at home, and 10% of every sale will always be donated to nonprofit companies dedicated to doing good.
Laura Wasserman is a fiber artist and autobiographical weaver based in the East Bay, CA, whose bold, abstract weavings and notably feminist compositions command both visual and physical space. Her pieces are maximalist in nature, and often use explosive color, experiment with found and recycled materials, and incorporate her own brand of small-batch handspun yarns.
Weaving as Healing
Every weaving is telling a story—capturing an emotional landscape and marking a moment in time. Personal narratives highlighted in her work include loss, motherhood, rupture, and the power and vulnerability of change. As an improvisational weaver, every layout and assortment of colors and fiber used is decided while a weaving is in progress. With formal degrees in creative writing, her weavings are entirely self-taught explorations.
