About Susi

Susi also weaves bespoke pieces to commission and enjoys working with individual and corporate clients.
Biography Back to top

Susi began weaving after a career in architecture and architectural education and so much of her work is informed by this experience. An interest in three dimensional, spatial concepts, is something that she tries to explore in woven form. In order to do this she uses materials and weave structures that will produce 3-D textiles or those that are visually dynamic. These might be linen, paper, silk or cotton or fibres that can take up shape and form.

She is also interested in optical effects, where an impression of three-dimensionality is produced by combining colour and/or pattern. Her design process uses several sources. She is particularly interested in the work of Bridget Riley and Agnes Martin and begins work by researching, drawing and making small analytical models. This is then taken to the loom by making trial samples before embarking on larger scale work.
