The inspiration for the fabric I wove for the red ties (see right) comes from an image by Kevin Mackenzie of the School of Medical Services at the University of Aberdeen. Kevin uses microscopy to create these stunning images.

This one is actually the scales on a moth’s wing and you can see more by visiting Kevin’s gallery page. It’s well worth a look.

Sally Moir of Smart commissioned these ties as part of her Sparkplug Project for the Crafts Council.
