ONDULÉ TEXTILES:
Weaving Contours with a Fan Reed
Norma Smayda with Gretchen White
• The first book on ondulé textiles, featuring instructions,
design tips, and 180+ photos of contemporary experts’ work
• Includes a comprehensive history of the fan reed, the tool for
ondulé weaving’s graceful, sinuous lines
• Be inspired by dozens of photos of exquisite woven pieces by Smayda
and other artists
Weaving involves straight, parallel, and gridlike lines, but as Norma Smayda
shows, ondulé—weaving with curving warp threads—offers new directions.
This is the first book on ondulé textiles, and includes clear information on every
aspect, from instructions to design tips to a comprehensive history of the fan
reed, the tool that makes ondulé possible. Smayda shares the details of her own
learning experiences with numerous ondulé warps in a variety of fibers. More
than 180 color photos also feature stunningly beautiful work by five other
contemporary and two twentieth-century weavers, plus intriguing historic
Japanese textiles. Also included are sections on weft ondulé, designing a fan
or hybrid reed, and the thought processes behind twenty-one of the featured
projects, including drafts.This referencewill serve as foundation and inspiration
for your ondulé weaving.
