SPRING CIRCLE – An entirely new kind of flatweave rug

I’m so excited to be able to share a sneak preview of an entirely new rug.

In fact, I’m not sure I have EVER seen a circular flatweave rug. Never. Please let me know if you have? This is called SPRING CIRCLE – a delicate circular  delight of fresh spring colours. Acid lime like wild garlic, pale primrose pink, deep tulip magenta, sky blue aqua; a symphony of spring chroma dancing before your eyes. Exquisitely edged and beautifully woven by our master weavers in India.

For some reason the wonderful ’roundness’ of this just lifts my spirits. We have yet to photograph this in a resplendent setting but I wanted to share with you to inspire you all to come to Clerkenwell in the last week of April to see this first hand at our Gallery show: Celebration of Cloth & Colour.

As if that wasn’t enough SPRING CIRCLE has some fellows to join it.

RHANA – (named after my fair sister in NYC) shows a more symmetrical dynamic; hot striations of tangerine and maroon singing next to scarlet and grey with a hot pink centre.

And finally… PINK SPHERE… almost (dare I say) Rothko-esq chromatic minimalism – vibrating within it’s circular confines. It can’t possibly get more pure than this.

Let me know what you think…..

    I studied Ikat in India in 1977 and explored similar ideas that are in your work (I will send some pictures soon)
    But my life took another turn and I became a florist, the income was steady and I still could vibrate colors
    It s so exciting to know you are doing this work
    I am a new fan๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒ
