Fractal Formations

Fractal Formations explores patterns found in nature, primarily focusing on and inspired by the fractal structures in botanic plants. Using an unconventional and mixed media approach, a geometric aesthetic has evolved to create an intriguing collection of knitted textile art installations and intricate drawn and etched pieces.

Branching Fractals

Branching Fractals

A branching pattern which seems to grow naturally through the piece. Transparent lurex and Japanese paper yarn with silk

Fractal Strips (Detail)

Long thin strips with an organic skeletal and almost vein like pattern growing through the knit. Inspired by the vein structures in a plants leaves. Layered and grouped delicate and transparent strips. Transparent lurex and Japanese paper with raw silk. Machine knitted fair-isle pattern

Knitted Wire Strips

Knitted Wire Strips

A series of three knitted copper wire strips the design on each becomes subtly more complex as the design progresses and grows through the strips. Copper wire, Lurex, Grillon and Japanese paper yarns.
