Lisa Carroll design
Lisa Carroll’s textile collection, State of Wonder, explores the beauty and artistry of nature’s awe-inspiring patterns. Carroll blurs the lines of the repeated forms seen in flora, fauna and ocean beds to create the ‘otherworldly’, that morphs these replications into a new form of nature through embroidery, embossing, digital printing and cutting technologies. Having worked in the textile industry for two decades the State of Wonder is Carroll’s introductory collection which explores a new mode of making that merges all the advantages of new technologies with traditional textile techniques and materials – with unexpected results. Each piece is developed entirely in Carroll’s studio, from drawing and hand embroidery to digital design and printing, laser cutting, embossing and bonding.
