Pond for Kathea
Pond is a tactile collection of handvowen carpets with a variation of heights and structures. The pattern is an abstraction of a fish shoal, tightly organised and coordinated in precise arrangements. Fast moving schools usually form a wedge shape while shoals that are travelling can form squares. This has been interpreted in a collection of carpets handwoven in New Zeeland wool with pattern of cut pile or soumak weave.
