Lynne's Inspiration

''I live close to Stoke-on-Trent, which is also called ‘The Potteries’ due to its ceramic heritage. One of the most famous and influential local ceramic artists is Clarice Cliff (1899-1972), who started to create her own designs in bright colours and Art Deco style. Her designs are still as popular and collectible as ever, and her distinctive patterns are instantly recognisable.

I have taken my inspiration from her use of strong colours and geometric shapes and combined these with carefully chosen stitch patterns to create a blanket that has the feel of a large Art Deco tile. First, I designed a central diamond then worked around it in a ‘log cabin’ style by adding one edge strip at a time, so that it’s easy to make but is visually striking as well as vibrant and unusual. To complete the blanket, I have added a row of tassels along each edge in matching yarns.

I’ve included simple stitch patterns, starting with garter stitch and basketweave stitch, then moving on to slipped stitches that create a mosaic effect, including an Aztec-style mosaic border.  I hope it shows that by using simple techniques, you can still create something that is visually beautiful." - Lynne Rowe.
