Woven Sculpture | Nottingham/Derbyshire, UK

Description:

Rachel Carter trained at The University of Derby with a BA (Hons) in Applied Arts, and creates woven sculptures using resistant materials such as Cast Bronze and Copper. Inspiration for her work comes from geometric patterns found in flowers and plants in the English countryside. Nature creates beautiful fluid shapes and these find their way into Rachel's sculptures. Every piece is hand worked using a range of weaving techniques from Crochet to Basketry to Macrame, combined with Rachel's trademark swirl weave to create sculptures using one material in a continuous length.
