Sample text

Our language and literature depend on such textile references, and our lives are often defined by them. The Revd Jesse Jackson, the American politician and civil-rights activist, described the national landscape and psyche in such terms: ‘America is not like a blanket – one piece of unbroken cloth, the same color, the same texture, the same size. ’2 This connectedness of life, place and textile – the positive textile presence within the environment – is what excites me. Stitch plays its part in this intervention.

Cut work, with two-thread cording on the Cornely ‘L’ machine, forms the lacelike border of this cape. The cording thread consists of two fine Cordonnet cottons on the cord-carrier spool. There is no pad thread; the tightly twisted thread is what makes the cord stand up in such relief. The fabric is a highly finished woollen facecloth, of a quality rarely seen today except in military dress uniforms. (Right) Detail of the same cape. A very fine example of continuous line design. The detail illustrates how well the characteristics of the Cornely machine were understood by the designer.

The heaviness of the stitch adds a relief and contour to the print; like some growing parasitic organism the stitch possesses the fabric, becoming the living, mutating part. As with the work of Inga Likšaite, there is a relationship between simple line and changes in stitch direction on the flat textile, which imposes a dimensional sense of scale and perspective. It also defines the pictorial space, whether this be a glimpsed figure or a cityscape. Both artists use photography to design their imagery: Clare Lane retains a background of digital print, while Inga Likšaite’s photographic reference is redrawn in stitch.
