IN RESPONSE

A collaboration between University for the Creative Arts, Farnham and the Crafts Study Centre, Farnham.

 

Colour plays an important role in my work and when exploring the archives at the Crafts Study Centre, I was drawn to the saturated colours and shimmering, iridescent surfaces in Geoff Roberts’ jewellery, which was then translated into weaving through the use of Lurex yarn mixed with spun silk and nylon monofilament. The use of copper wire in the weft also allows each woven piece to be manipulated by hand, creating a series of experimental samples which echo the curved, sculptural forms in the jewellery by Roberts.
