Alayna Rasile

Within the limitations of warp and weft, Alayna uses the axes of space and time as a framework for materials to tell stories. Her work involves foraged fibers and found fabrics, plant-dyes, woven cloth, and FM transmitters broadcasting loom sounds. Alayna's projects come about as a personal response to place, an exploration of a feeling, and a forecast for a future where textiles are lifelines. With a practice built out of healthy materials, healing processes, and a hopeful worldview - Alayna's woven work is an effort to creatively consider future textiles through material innovation and the application of traditional weaving techniques.

In addition to being a featured artist with Glass Breakfast you can find Alayna Rasile's work at alaynarasile.com and on Instagram.
