The article offers the views of textile designer Daniella Woolf. She states that she limits the materials she uses in her creation. Woolf adds that the self-imposed restrictions increase her ability to examine expression. Woolf believes that daily handwritten journaling is essential to her practice since she deconstructs and restructures the language. She adds that she brings textile sensibility to the old medium of encaustic, and by combining two disciplines and limited choice of materials, she can create a newly formed language.
