Inspiraton by Patternbank Lisa Nilsson – Structure, Borders and Pattern
Patternbank love the complex pattern work and detailed borders to be found in Lisa Nilsson’s latest quillwork series of rug and textile designs. Tapis Series is a complex arrangement of densely packed coils of quarter-inch mulberry strips and crimped and shaped gilt paper, all cut by hand. Previously Nilsson worked on anatomical cross sections in her Tissue Series and felt ready for a new challenge that would enable her to explore new colour palettes, patterns and textures. Using textile and rug designs Nilsson has created such beautiful shapes and patterns that are contained within structured borders giving them the tight continuity needed in every coil of paper.
