Each of Catarina’s pieces are highly individual, characterised by the slight irregularities typical of handmade objects. Her approach is intuitive, with the design often forming spontaneously while sitting at the loom. Hand-weaving offers flexibility and allows the use of ‘complicated’ materials such as knotted cut-off yarns. Catarina makes full use of these freedoms throughout the process, producing work of such quality and texture that can only be achieved by handweaving. For her, this is one of the most fascinating and rewarding motivations for making.
