Waves, After Charles Rennie Mackintosh, 2018 is part of Dovecot Patterns, a selection of tapestries created by Dovecot weavers which evokes a cultural conversation through pattern that reaches back thousands of years. Weaver Emma Jo Webster was inspired by the work of Scottish architect, artist, and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Mackintosh was influential in the Art Nouveau movement, a style often employed in architecture and the decorative arts, which was inspired by the clean and curving lines found in nature. Taking Mackintosh’s repeated Art Nouveau patterns as a starting point, Webster created languid lines which are separated by strong, rich colours. The result is a tapestry with decorative qualities which hints at the patterns of one of Scotland’s most significant designers.

This tapestry is currently available for sale at £2,000 inclusive of VAT. All funds raised from Dovecot Patterns will support the work of Dovecot Studios and the tapestry apprenticeship scheme.
