About The Artist
Regina Vorgang • Ventura, CA
Fiber & Textiles • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I create original handwoven wool rugs, table runners and tapestries that combine my strong sense of color and design with weaving to make bold, functional pieces. Many of my pieces are woven in a painterly fashion by creating shapes and changing color while I build the weaving. Others, like my Socially Speaking Rugs, are planned and mapped out before I begin weaving. My designs are very graphic and each piece is one-of-a-kind.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I design and weave my pieces with wool fiber that I source from local suppliers who work sustainably and spin and dye their wool. I have designs I work up with different color palettes, choosing the colors I want to work with for each piece and then weave in a painterly fashion, changing shapes and colors as I weave. I keep sketch books with ideas for inspiration when starting a new series or design.
