On weaving:

“Plain weave is anything but plain. Its simplicity provides the freedom to explore the interaction between materials, and to experiment with unconventional structure and composition, with minimal interference from the loom.”


Embracing a nontraditional approach to weaving reflects Laura Poll’s relationship with the larger world. Uninterested in conventional constraints, rules and expectations, she is always experimenting with her artwork, deliberately pushing against the boundaries and limitations of the loom, real and perceived.

Laura prefers working with a two-harness set-up. She relies on material selection and fabric manipulation to bring texture and life to her artwork.
