Description - Walking on Art: Explorations in Carpet Design by Deirdre Dyson
Walking on Art explores contemporary carpet design from a practitioner's viewpoint. A foreword by Professor Sir Christopher Frayling contextualizes Deirdre Dyson's award-winning work within discussions about art and design, and then Dyson herself reflects on her long experience of designing exquisite luxury carpets. The chapter 'Techniques' introduces the traditional methods that create these carpets, and how these conventions can be manipulated to create stunning effects. 'Process' then explores the steps - from inspiration to making, that lie behind any design. These chapters are followed by Dyson's collections. Illustrated in full, they demonstrate her love of colour and her range of inspirations, from butterflies to sea shells.
