Hebrides Gravity Vessels
Inspired by the world famous Harris Tweed which can only be woven on the Isle of Harris on a croft using looms, often set inside rickety corrugated sheds. Typically the weavers will also be fishermen or shepherds. The wool is dyed to reflect the colours of the Hebridean landscape, turquoise sea, rugged barnacle encrusted rocks and peat bogs, the textures of which can be seen in this collection. These pieces start flat and are heated slowly until they sag through the middle of a ring using heat and gravity. if they survive that, I have to take off the rim with a hammer before careful cold working!
