A spinning commission of banana silk and wool dyed by a talented indie dyer in the colours of ‘Elsa’.


You know those mornings when you wake and you instantly know?

You know before you draw the curtains, before you even really open your eyes.

There’s a strange light quality.

A light that means no other possibility, but snow.

Some spatterings, some deep drifts, all altering the familiar contours.

The snow-covered landscape is new, is strange, is constantly changing

And we rush to explore it with childlike glee.
