Clare Coyle

I am forever inspired by the landscape and the history of land use within Scotland. This has developed from my interest in archaeology, prehistoric dwellings and the everyday lives and artefacts of our ancestors. I am interested in the marks that man has made on the landscape, marks and patterns on everyday things such as pottery, stone and metal. The passage of time and weathering, changes to land use and how the ever-changing climate over millennia has impacted on the topography of the landscape.  

I use mostly fine wools, linens, silks and cotton in multiple mixes to obtain the colour mixes and textures that I feel help to reflect layering of shapes and colour in my work. I mostly work with a fine sett and on work that is less than 50 square cm.
