We have three standard sizes: I – 40cm x 40cm, II – 105cm x 40cm and III – 145cm x 60cm. The wall hangings can be made up to 150cm wide and any height or 150cm high by any width, one dimension being dependent on the width (150cm) of the largest loom in the studio. Any combination of overall measurements can be made as a multi-panel piece, with a maximum width per panel of 150cm. Please contact us by e-mail for more details of this service.
For her wall hangings, Lisbeth Mulcahy has chosen to work with the Kilim Technique, which allows for very clear and defined colour areas, working with the weave construction rather than covering it. The inspiration is clearly the natural world but in a very abstract form. The list of designs has the available sizes marked beside the name, e.g. Circle I, II, III, Sun I & II or Layers III.
Lisbeth has the yarn dyed with special colours for her designs. The standard colour range varies over time. All colour ways are ‘pure colour’ in the sense that they are not inspired by nature and do not relate to anything outside of themselves other than the designs. Currently we have five colour ways, three consisting of solid colour areas only and two with a combination of mixed and solid colours. Each area of colour is woven with four strands of yarn and the mixed colours are done by using two strands each of two colours. The colourways are numbered as follows: 1: navy/black mix and plain navy back ground with purple/dark green mix and turquoise design detail, 2: dark red/orange mix and plain dark red background with grey, grey/red mix and orange design detail, 3: pale grey and greenish grey background with white and pale tangerine design detail, 4: greenish grey and dark grey background with white and pale green design detail, 5: dark and light grey background with red orange mix and dark red design detail.
As each wall hanging is handmade the sizes are approximate.
