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.
