When the lawnmower threw up a stone and broke a glass door panel, did we rush for the dustpan? No, we, that is Jonty & I, rushed off separately and returned clutching cameras. It was such a beautiful bright pattern. I was inspired to use it as background to a piece I did for the Association of Guilds of Weavers Spinners & Dyers‘ Exhibition in 2008. I wove several pieces in a satin derivative called Walking on Broken Glass after Annie Lennox’s eponymous song.
This is a cotton warp and wool weft, woven in a satin damask.
Can you see the footsteps?
