While working on our various commissioned projects, we have also been working on a new window for above the front door of our studio. Our inspiration for this image came from an old black and white photo of a tapestry designed by Dora Wheeler called The Winged Moon. Dora Wheeler was the daughter of Candace Wheeler, who founded the Associated Artists with Louis Tiffany. Candace Wheeler was instrumental in reviving and creating an American style of textile work, and her daughter designed many tapestries for the company.
In the above photo, part of the window can be seen on the light table as we work on cutting and fitting. To the right, Bill is seen foiling the window. We should be finishing it soon!
