Exclusive range of ceramics based on a 1933 linocut design by Barbara Hepworth, used on a hand-printed curtain fabric. Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life at The Hepworth Wakefield.

Hepworth loved the process of lino printing, enthusing, ‘I’m absolutely bitten by this printing business, can’t get on with carving at all! I’ve just done one for 2 colours and tonight superimposed a third just for fun.’  Several of her designs were realised as furnishing fabrics and curtains, some of which she exhibited in a joint show with Ben Nicholson at the Lefevre Gallery in October 1933. In contrasting light and dark hues, Hepworth’s designs are more geometric than her concurrent sculptures, with diamonds, squares and grids exploring an interplay between absence and presence.

Made in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the English pottery industry.

Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) is one of the most important artists of the 20th century. She was at the forefront of multiple avant-garde art movements, with wide-ranging interests that infused her work. Deeply spiritual and passionately engaged with political and technological change, Hepworth focused on the dynamic physical encounter with sculpture and how this could allow the viewer to both reflect on and alter their perceptions and experiences of the world.
