Braid

Ink and Emerald

Inspired by the simple geometry of braiding, twisting, weaving and binding. Traditional techniques from leatherworking. Referencing saddlery, bridlery, ribbon braiding as well as the heritage of wrought iron work. Subtly refining, repeating and layering the geometry reveals a contemporary graphic flow. Within this simplicity is an intriguing depth that comes from the contrast of joining materials and colours. Matte against lustre and light against shade.

Braid Mirror Collection

Ink, Bronzed Brass

The pursuit of simplicity. A perfect mirror. A disc of absolutely flat, flawlessly reflective glass held within a precisely engineered outline of solid metal. Brass, bronze and pewtered steel respond, against the mirror surface, beautifully to light. The mirror is held in perfect balance by three tones of richly oiled vegetable tanned leather handwoven into a 2 metre long strap.

Emerald, Bronzed Brass

There is a gorgeous contrast between the imposing form and material of the mirror and the gentle tactility of the braided leather and hand-stitched hanging strap. Braid ‘Strap Mirror’ features a beautiful wide bronzed brass frame suspended by a hand woven strap in the three colours of emerald, metallic teal and ink. Braid ‘Pendant Mirror’ presents a precise narrow frame with glass set flush to the edge and suspended vertically by a succinct strap in the same three tones.

Braid, Teal

A tradition of quality and a heritage of technique. One hundred percent, virgin lambswool from New Zealand and sustainably grown silk. Woven by master craftsmen in rural India. It is an intense hand process. A square inch of rug contains one hundred and fifty knots of yarn. A single rug takes up to four months to complete.

Braid, Teal

The density of the rug allows the surface to be meticulously hand carved to enhance and reveal the flow and sheen of the weave. The surface becoming subtly redolent of the carved, tooled and embossed leather that recurs frequently in her work.

The confident simplicity of pattern gives the piece a quiet contemporary elegance. Beautiful, sumptious and incredibly durable. A piece of art that is as exquisite to use as it is to look at.
