Huib Petersen – Bead Weaving Artist

Huib Petersen visited the shop yesterday, and we had a very nice visit.  He brought with him many of his wonderful pieces.

He has one series of work that is very nature-inspired.   I love the way he can manipulate his peyote stitch work to get the natural curves and twirls in the butterfly wings.    And his use of color placement is superb.    With these techniques, he gets very realistic-looking pieces, with a strong sense of dimensionality, with beauty and wearability.    Unfortunately, computer images can’t show the detail and the dimensionality.

Another series of pieces he’s begun working on involves tubular right angle weave in cubic forms.    In one piece, he layered one tubular right angle rope/chain (line of open square donuts done as a continuous rope) over another rope/chain.     In appearance, it looked like he had used basket-weaving techniques to intertwine the rope/chains, but in reality, it was just how they were layed one on top of the other.
