Harmonising Yarn

The use of crocheted, knitted and embroidered yarn to embellish artwork, clothing and soft furnishing is demonstrated globally. UK textile artists Amy Twigger Holroyd and Celia Pym use yarn colours and textures to both darn, remake and enhance clothing's haptic sense and sustainability. Harmonising crochet, knitting and embroidery, and uniting them with her current MA theme of ‘harmony’ in music and textiles, led Susan to produce a piece that links a pot by Lucie Rie with calligraphy by Ann Hechle.

Susan was inspired by the delicate detailed lines of Rie’s pots, and worked in collaboration with other MA students through discussion to produce a series of interpreted responses. She has combined Hechle’s association with musical notation and Rie’s work, designing a crochet piece that demonstrates their visual and haptic textures, and which reflects the use of colour by layering the coloured crochet yarn textures with inspired embellishments that demonstrate the detail within.
