About

The hanging illustrated has sold, but is presented on 1stdibs as the artist maker works to commission. Anna Gravelle is a designer with a reputation for creating innovative fabrics and architectural art for private and public spaces. Her designs are developed through exploring traditional and contemporary processes which are realised using printed pattern and tufting. She works with British wool cloth and fine embroidery threads. Anna can both recreate a bespoke version (in size and colour way) for your project, or create an entirely bespoke piece for you. Please contact us so we can send you images of former and current projects. This particular piece 'Murmuration' is inspired by the spectacular natural phenomenon of starlings who flock in their thousands before roosting. An engagement with materials and the process of making what drives Anna's design practice. Her handcrafted textiles are designed in response to her fascination with textural landscapes and interpreting them through drawing, photography and mark making into stitch and print. Texture is at the heart of her design process with the aim of creating a beguiling and unexpected tactile experiences. The main panel is wool based cloth with a linen backing cloth, as illustrated. Please note one of the images shows the artist turning the fabric to show the reverse. This is before the backing was applied and has been featured purely to show the technique of tufting, and to illustrate the skill of the artist who only sees this side as she works. The measurement provided of 150cm width included the hanging system. This is a polished acrylic bar with standing screws supplied. The textile sits away from the wall by 2cm creating a natural shadow and added layer of three-dimensionality. An additional acrylic bar is supplied to slide into the bottom edge of the textile. This is not fixed but designed to weight the textile for an even hang. Please note white glove shipping can include installation. As an example the overall weight of this piece was 4.5kg including hanging system
