Cushions from “The Chromascope Series” by Ptolemy Mann

MY WORK AIMS TO ELEVATE THE ART OF THE WOVEN CLOTH TO A NEW AND CONTEMPORARY LEVEL.

In addition to being a successful colour consultant, Ptolemy Mann is celebrated nationwide for her textile artworks, and has established herself as the unique creator of one-off woven architectural art panels. Her series of hand dyed and woven circular artworks present explosions of elegant and dynamic colour in juxtaposition, and make for unique and vibrant artworks for the wall.

Ptolemy has developed ‘The Chromascope Series’ of art cushions especially for The New Craftsmen; in a strictly limited edition these pieces are made from Ptolemy’s unique collection of laboriously hand dyed and woven swatches collected over the last 16 years, and stitched together by expert needle-smith Nina Plumer into cushions of an exact formation of colour and tone.
