About Jeanne Flanagan, Mad Weave Creations
"Welcome to my world of mad weaving. The “baskets” you see on this site are built using a triaxial weave called madweave. It originated in Malaysia, China, and the Phillipines. All weaving is so ancient that no one really knows who started any type of weave. But I find this weave so challenging and absorbing that I keep on exploring what forms I can create from it.
I have been weaving for 5 years and find it both challenging and absorbing. I come a sewing and handwork background and with three dimensional weaving, I finally incorporate my engineering side. I hope you enjoy the pictures. There are lots more to be posted."
