This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic  blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style.  The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.

About Fiona Gordon

I am a mother and now a proud grandmother of two beautiful boys. I am married to Jon Lincoln-Gordon a wonderful landscape artist and teacher. I have worked as a mental health nurse for many years and understand the importance of nature and creativity to our mental health. I love living in our tranquil valley in Devon, I have a small flock of Jacob sheep and use their fleece to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet. I grow a lot of my own dye stuffs and am never more happy than boiling up flowers heads and dying my own wool, well maybe when I have finished a project having created it from scratch. We decided to share our little bit of heaven by doing some Glamping, we have three old caravans we have restored so people can come and stay and top up on some peace and calm.
