Deirdre Dyson’s 2020 Looking Glass Collection

Inspired by the act of looking at and through glass, ‘Looking Glass’ consists of eight carpet designs, including ‘Transparent’, a reinterpretation of decorative shapes on a coloured vase and ‘Light Between’, a play on contrasting monochrome grading with the illusion of light. ‘Slivers’, which stems from a series of small flat discs of overlapping glass, combines 33 colours in wool and silk while ‘Looking Through’ began as a painting of the distortions seen through a water-filled flask against the real shapes behind.

Deirdre says: “With this collection, my aim was to simulate a visual glassy appearance using wool and silk. A challenge indeed but I hoped that even if I failed to achieve this, I would still create exciting and interesting results and effects.”

Through Deirdre’s work as a fine artist, she expertly creates striking colour palettes and beautiful compositions that will enhance any surface – whether that’s by using gorgeous silk across a wide area to suggest distortion through glass, or luxurious wool to add depth and create a three-dimensional effect, as seen in the Glass Cubes design.
