Taet Light

Annemarie O'Sullivan
£10,560
Taet Light by Annemarie O'Sullivan was inspired by Annemarie's time spent in residency on the Orkney Islands, organised by The New Craftsmen. Annemarie found herself drawn to the historical grains grown on Orkney, discovering Rye straw was once used in the hat making industry to make bonnets. The natural strength of the straw, which lent itself well to hat making, inspired Annemarie to use it to produce this dynamic, structural light.
