"I do not want my house to be walled on all sides and my windows to be stuffed...... I want the cultures of all lands to blow about my house as freely as possible."
Mahatma Gandhi

Artist Statement

We make a range of wall panels and platters as a response to almost annual visits to India, a country that we find endlessly facinating.

Having a major exhibition 'Indian Inspirations' at the Rufford Craft Centre Gallery during June / July 2014  has given us the opportunity to develop our work further and, whilst still inspired by India, it has moved away from the purely textile influence to a much wider appreciation of the colour of everyday life and the many festivals as well as the art forms to be found in tribal decoration.

The textile influence is, of course, still there.
