Concept

In this carpet, Emma Olbers takes on an ancient star/3D- cube pattern in four ways. In the handtufted versions, she has created a triptyk to celebrate the genious of the pattern which makes you want to look twice - or many more times. The fourth version is woven in NATURALS* New Zealand wool with stiched details.

”The idea came when I looked at pictures from a visit to the cathedral in Orvieto in Italy, and the classic floor pattern there,” says Emma Olbers. ”I have worked with the pattern, adding and removing lines, and filled in various points. Though it may appear simple, it can be varied in thousands of ways and create a spectra of optical illusions.”
