Crystalline x 4 : 2007

In 2007 I was commissioned to make a textile piece for the contemporary section of Lloyd Cotsen’s textile collectionthe Box Project. The pieces commissioned for this collection all had to fit into archival boxes.

The idea that evolved, was to make a book. Books and Boxes have been related for over a thousand years. Books were precious; hand made, written and decorated, and were often placed in boxes. The idea which eventually evolved was to make several books, which when displayed side by side created a pattern sequence, with no beginning or end.
