Wall-hanging: plastic elements (6000) joined with plastic jewellery studs
‘Do you look to see the delicate veins crisscrossing a fragile leaf? The intricate threads of an antique doily? The patterns created by braided or twisted hair? It is these unique, infinitely complex structures that influence my work and were instrumental in the design and construction of Lace.
Lace is constructed utilising a specific number as a starting point, each individual number creates a variation on an algorithm and thus a different lace pattern. It is the number of joined elements that determines the pattern of the finished lace.
Repetitive patterns exist all around us. These rhythmic, lyrical forms all have one thing in common; they are all based on mathematical equations and are dependent on the addition of extra elements to create variation.’
