Collaborating with Alice Schlein, of Greenville, SC, is one of the most rewarding experiences in my creative life. As weavers and fiber artists Alice and I have varied interests. Our weaving paths are quite different, but our mutual love of books brought our talents together.

First come Alice’s cloth and book. Then I work to capture the essence of her cloth to design cords and create the book’s ply-split band. Much discussion takes place via e-mail, Skype, and the telephone, and samples often travel through the mail. The book structure determines whether I create the band and send it to Alice, or Alice’s book comes to me to attach cords and ply-split the band in situ.

Aristotle’s words describe our pieces best: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
