A delicate modern geometric tapestry artwork woven with bleached and unbleached linen on cotton, exploring the structure of weaving itself. The composition is made up of interconnected triangles and exposed sections of warp, left exposed by the “absence” of the weft. The two shades of linen are blended with delicate lines, mixed with solid blocks of one shade.
The tapestry is set on a backing of thick mount-board, with a bespoke-cut picture mount in front. The overall piece measures 40cm x 50cm, and the woven area is 25cm x 30cm. This piece is shipped unframed, wrapped in cellophane in a secure cardboard envelope.
If you would like Christabel to have this piece framed for you, please Contact Us and we will be in touch to discuss your requirements.
UK P&P is £15.00. International P&P is £25.00.

Christabel Balfour specialised in woven sculpture while studying at the Ruskin School of Art and since graduating has further developed her practise as a weaver; weaving beautiful quality rugs and wall tapestries by hand on her 1976 Harris Rug loom in her London studio.
Christabel is inspired by weaving traditions across the globe and throughout history as well as by the cityscape of London, with its modern architectural lines and the wider countryside of Great Britain. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between the geometry of the city and the natural elements of landscapes.
Christabel can make a handwoven rug to order in any choice of colours; creating a truly unique piece of art for your home.
