L. S. Designs: Handwovens by Lynn Smetko
It begins with a striking image captured on my travels, perhaps something  from nature or an architectural detail.  The picture's palette determines what colors to dye the silk yarns.  Photo-editing and weaving software assist in  designing a weave plan that incorporates visual characteristics of the subject.  When yarn is wound onto a computer-assisted loom and  the shuttle thrown, a  silk scarf or shawl comes to life.  Plain white yarn has been transformed into luxurious, multi-hued fabric representative of the photograph, right at the intersection of technology and art.
