History of Plaid

HistoryofPlaid

This felt piece was inspired by the Celtic origins of plaid as a pattern. The interlacing of colors is examined at a variety of scales in order to evoke the mountains and sea of the British Isles as viewed through a crofters window, the rhythm of the beating of the loom echoed in the rhythm of the pattern.
