The Stardust Collection combines my love for weaving with my fascination for the universe. The Solar Abundance shawl reminds us that all objects, even massive stars, are made up of tiny atoms. Atoms emit radiation of a certain color, somewhere between ultraviolet and infrared. An atom can be identified by the color of radiation that it emits, as the radiated color is different for atoms of different elements. The radiation of a star combines all these colors into a colorspectrum. By looking at the intensity of the different colors in this colorspectrum, it is possible to determine how much of each element it contains. In the case of the sun, this composition is called the Solar Abundance. The alternating green and petrol colors in the warp of this shawl symbolise the radiation colors of single atoms.
