Shimmering snow is a project that aims to explore expressiveness of snow and its properties through combin¬ing woven fabric with light. The fragile, translucent, reflective and cold feeling of ice was my inspiration. I started to make textile sketches on a hand weaving loom in which optical fibers, effect yarn and monofilament yarn were combined to create a piece with the expression of cold¬ness and fragile ice. The sketch was further developed in the shaft weaving machine to enlarge the size. The outcome is a light emitting fabric which displays the expression of snow and its properties.
