CLOTH OF CLAY
*this work is available directly from The New Craftsmen, please go to their page to enquire; https://www.thenewcraftsmen.com/
Part of a new collection of work by Imogen
Bright Moon for The New Craftsmen, the Cloths of Chalk, Shell & Clay are a continuation of a creative collaboration and artistic relationship with acclaimed ceramicist Elaine Bolt, and her new collection, Sussex Weft.
These narrative textiles speak to texture and tone; the implicit quietude of the coastal landscape of East Sussex, where they are woven.
These weavings are studies in painterly washes of the natural pigment found in the blending of rare- breed British fleeces, golden flax linens (in various states of retting and sun-whitening); textured nettle, and luminous wild silk.
An echo of the matte and powdered ancient landscape can be felt in the textile; a journey along the Pilgrim Path, speaking the languages of weather, coast, camouflage
and murmuration and woven into a work of contemporary craft.
Each piece comes with a pair of hand-forged hooks for hanging.
