Joseph Oregon Textile Art
Wool, Fiber, Thread & Loom combine to make art that feels as good as it looks.
Loring Lamb, award-winning fiber artist, has been a weaver/spinner for 25 years. She learned to weave in a traditional style from the Finnish Elders in her hometown community of Clatskanie, Oregon. Loring uses locally grown wool and "finds" from the local Soroptomist in her woven peices. For the last 5 years she has branched off into beadwork. Loring was taught the art of beading by the well-known Umatilla tribal member Maynard "White Owl" Lavador, whose original beadwork is featured in the Smithsonian collection. Loring uses all sorts of unique odds and ends in her original beaded pieces.
