Textile Art


  

We love working with textiles of all kinds.

 

For several years we have been best known for our mathematically-based knitted and crochet wall-hangings. They are very large and take a long time to make so we started to interpret some of our original ideas as fabric prints.

 

We are mathematicians at heart and the mathematical influence can be seen even when we are not trying to convey a particular mathematical message. You will soon notice the geometry and may be able spot some representations of number patterns....

 

....but it isn't all mathematical. We also love experimenting with colour and creating unexpected optical effects.

 

 

 

We make two types of prints, which give completely different effects: silk screen prints have mathematical precision and solid colours; block prints are made from specially cut blocks and each time a block is used it makes a different impression so the results are much less regular.
