Flowers are in the middle of everyday things. Some are usually weeds or wildflowers whose blooms seem insignificant in contrast to the prettier and showy flowers we grow in our gardens. Yet, these are the ones that fill the patch of grass enveloping a hill; the ones that add contrast to the concrete pavement; the ones that bloom quietly at their best, even when they will not be tended or put on a vase. They are here to add spark, lead our path, and make us pause and notice.
To express gratitude to the tiny pretty living things, we used the pattern 'small flowers' and weaved it into a mat. To create the small flower patterns, Apong Vicenta uses a 4-pedal loom. She weaves four to five mats measuring 30 x 70 inches in one day.
Used as a picnic mat or throw, it is as versatile as you want it to be. Sit down on it, use it as a wrap-around, or on a table - the possibilities are up to you.
The next time you step outside, give these flowers, weeds, and wildflowers a second look, or even pick up some, and you might surprise yourself.
