L. S. Designs: Handwovens by Lynn Smetko
Computers and textile arts fascinate me, and it is in weaving that I discovered how technology meets art.  It begins with a photograph, perhaps something that I see in nature or an architectural detail.  The image's palette determines what colors to dye the silk yarns.  Photo-editing and weaving software assist in designing a weave plan that incorporates visual characteristics of the subject.  The yarn is wound onto my computer-assisted loom, I throw the shuttle and a beautiful silk scarf or shawl comes to life.
