Textile Art and Sculptures

Textile Art and Sculptures

“Deepa Panchamia’s work is powerful, addressing as it does a fundamental and beguiling characteristic of all forms of life, namely those ever-present contradictions in nature, where the transparent yet strong, fluid and rigid, ostensibly random yet structured so often coalesce with such beautiful results”.
—Mary Schoeser, 2017

This debut book presents a selection of Deepa Panchamia's work from 2004—2017, including notes and extracts from the artist’s journal and essays written by Mary Schoeser. Limited to 300 copies, each book is numbered and signed by the artist.

Fabricate: Composition and texture

Fabricate: Composition and texture

Photographic book/catalogue by weaver and textile designer Åsa Pärson. The sample weave is Åsa’s sketch method for creating qualities with different characteristics where she distinguish between the tactility and the sensation of the textile. That is how the material behaves in the hand, against the skin and also how it looks. It is easy to replace a component and get a whole new result, a new surface, a new feeling that sometimes also becomes an association to something completely different from the weaving.

The Thread Wrapping Machine

The Thread Wrapping Machine

Anton Alvarez has spent two years developing a machine that spins thousands of metres of brightly coloured thread around pieces of wood and metal to join them, producing solid benches, stools and lamps without traditional joints of any kind. The thread acts as an joining element, allowing the raw material being wrapped to be extremely elaborate without appearing so. Alvarez’s work has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum and is represented by Libby Sellers Gallery in London. In photos, interviews and essays, this book presents the evolution of the thread wrapping technique, with an essay by UglyCute founder Andreas Nobel and a foreword by legendary British artist and curator Richard Wentworth.

Naturlig färgning

Naturlig färgning

Most of our textiles today contain too high amounts of hazardous chemicals that adversely affect humans and nature. In this practical inspiration book, traditional plant dyeing takes on new forms. You will learn how to color, fabric, yarn or perhaps an old natural fiber garment with pigments from your environment in a simple and poison-free way. The color pigments are found mainly in food and in otherwise we would shed peel and kernels from fruits such as avocado and pomegranate and vegetables such as onion and carrots, morning coffee or perhaps waste water from the dinner rice.

Please note that this book is in Swedish.

Bojito Carafe

Bojito Carafe

Bojito is designed by Silo Studio, through looking at ways of creating unique items with one mould; each time they make one it will be slightly different from the next. A textile is used that can withstand very high temperatures and still stay strong many times over. The textile mould leaves a beautifully tactile surface on the glass.

Coming from backgrounds in engineering and design, the core of Silo’s work is to look at industrial processes and materials, and adapt them to the studio setting. By adopting a hands-on approach, which they refer to as ‘Handmade hi-tech’, they aim to discover possibilities that the production line does not see, developing the expressive potential in industrial materials. A mix of craft and technology.

Bojito is handmade in London in collaboration with expert glass blower Jochen Holz. It can be used to enjoy hot or cold drinks and is dishwasher safe.

Material: Textile moulded borosilicate glass
Colours: Clear, Teal, Green, Amber, Pink
Measurements: 70 x 100 x 145 mm

Flax light

Flax light

Flax light is designed by the Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma, who explores the life of products and raw materials. With her designs, Christien aims to regain understanding of processes that have become so distant in industrialisation.

With the Flax project, Christien collaborated with farmer Gert Jan van Dongen, using his entire harvest of 10,000 kilos of flax fibers from his farm in the Flevopolder in 2010 to develop a series of products from this locally produced flax. Working from the seed to the final product. One of these products is the Flax light, which was made in collaboration with traditional ropemaker Touwslagerij Steenbergen and designed for Thomas Eyck.

Materials : Flax and porslin socket
Measurements : Length 5m

Each composition is individually crafted using sheets of layered paper and intricate cutwork and stitching. The paper is handmade by Deepa Panchamia at the Paper House in Fiskars Village, Finland, using cotton mixed with bits of nature.

Kasuri rag rug

Kasuri rag rug

Kasuri is a soft heavyweight rug made from off-cuts from the T-shirt industry. Designed by Studio Brieditis & Evans, each rug is hand-braided by two braiders Jothi and Chitra in India, making every one unique.

Kasuri is part of the Re Rag Rug project which started as an experimental design project exploring the social and ecological sustainability of the rug. The project seeks to add value to seemingly worthless materials through upcycling. The rugs are made using craft techniques that do not require large spaces or machines and are therefore suitable for cottage industry production in textile producing countries such as India, making this both a sustainable use of materials and craft skills.

Dry cleaning recommended.

Materials: 100% upcycled cotton jersey
Colours: Coffee or Sand
Measurements: 150x250cm
