Patterns

2020-2021
8 pendants
15 cm width, length or diameter


The pendants are constructed from patterns or pattern sketches made by Russian Constructivist textile artists in the 1920’s. Each part and material has its own role within the configuration, reflecting the function and aesthetics of the source patterns.
