This Hanging textile is a celebration of the Feminine principles and our innate connection to the Land. A 'Hearth' is a folk name for fire place, and 'Sala' is the Proto-Celtic word for 'Moorland'. This Craft Work is a reflection of the fire that burns at the heart of All Things.

I have lived either on or near to Dartmoor in the South West of England for the majority of my Spinning and Weaving journey. I am an Apprentice to the ways, knowings and teachings of this sacred and precious land and devote my life's work to re-membering and preserving the magic of this Island. This Hanging was made in reverence and deep respect to Dartmoor and all those seen and unseen who dwell with her.

I was inspired to create this piece to mark the birthing of The Hearth of Sala Artists collective. It was spun and woven in ceremony at my studio nestled in a Devonshire Valley near the river Dart, and naturally dyed at my previous studio on the Western edge of Dartmoor.
