Margaret Crowther(1936-), is a British textile artist who creates 3D tapestries by hand, many without a loom.  She knots and twists and builds up textures.  I am smitten with her use of orange, and color gradations, and the three dimensional levels.

Margaret Crowther creates custom work for homes, and Sinead Lawler describes the process of commissioning a piece, conversations about colors and textures.  The artist created a special box (or as the author put it a “bespoke box”) for carrying it to the client’s home.

I love to use levels in my own work, and the way they catch the light, and create a terrain.
