Undyed 4x6 Gabbeh with Oasis Mirage
Undyed Wool Gives Way to a Mirage of Palms in This Abstract Gabbeh.
This Gabbeh reminded me of a desert mirage from the first moment I saw it. The blue green palms seem to leap out from a parched landscape. The lines below the palms reminded me of the way the light is bent in heat to resemble glassy lines in the distance.
Most of this piece is produced using undyed wool in its natural tones, with the exception of the palms and blue lines in the foreground. These are made with mixture of yellow dyes produced form thistle and onion skins with a diluted indigo wash to get the desired hue.
