Textile, Myddleton, 2014

This is a Textile. It was designed by Wallace Sewell and produced by Designtex (American, founded 1961). It is dated 2014 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is 100% wool and its technique is twill weave and satin weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.

A “planted” warp, in which multiple colors are arranged in an irregular pattern, is time-consuming and costly to set up on the loom. Master colorists Wallace Sewell designed four unique patterns on the same warp, one stripe and three Bauhaus-inspired grids patterns.

This object was donated by Designtex. It is credited Gift of Designtex Group.
