The article describes the tablet-woven works of weaver Ruth Bright Mordy which provide a bold affirmation of the advantages of working within technical limitations. Thirty years ago, Mordy chose a weaving technique traditionally used to create narrow, sturdy lengths of cloth for straps, belts, and decorative bands and began her ever-evolving process of bulking up and refining the technique to produce weavings on a grand scale. A striking quality of Mordy's work is the variety and intimate beauty of the individual elements that create the whole.
