MA work

A Study of the Interaction of the Wrapper, the Wrapped and the Unwrapped

Amber’s wrapped inspirations from everyday food experiences are presented as a woven story of concealing and revealing. It is a continuing practice from her MA dissertation A Study of the Interaction of the Wrapper, the Wrapped and the Unwrapped, in which she focused on wrapping, as both material action and metaphorical metamorphosis. 


Her work emphasises composition and construction through subtlety in colour, texture and mood. With handwoven and jacquard fabrics Amber interprets her observations of colour and material into elaborately engineered layering structure.
