The Dog Days of Summer Weaving by Rosemary Roehl


This is an Embellishment exhibit piece. Available to pick up or have shipped after January 5, 2024.

Artist Statement: I find figurative boundweave (creating figures while weaving boundweave or krokbragd) fun to weave. I used bows and fuzzy yarn and French knots to add bees, cardinals, apples, and pesky ladybugs. This weaving was inspired by nature. I am a self-taught weaver focusing on traditional Norwegian weaving. I fell in love with Norwegian weavings during my first trip to an ancestor's home on the Nordfjord in 1978.

I started competing in the Vesterheim National Norwegian-American Folk Art Exhibition in 1983. I received a Vesterheim Gold Medal in Rosemaling in 1992. I enjoy exploring different ways to use traditional techniques and color. I taught at St. Cloud State University (MN) in the College of Education and retired in 1997.

Dimensions: L 27” x w 12 ½”

Materials: Norwegian wool yarn
