On Thursday I went down to a great exhibition by Patternity at Londonewcastle Project Space on Redchurch Street for the opening of Pattern Power РSuperstripe.  Founded by Art Director Anna Murray and Surface and textile designer Grace Winteringham; this is the first of their annual events exploring the powerful presence of pattern and its ability to positively inspire and connect us all. True to its title exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists, designers and thinkers all of whom work with patterns, be it a surface pattern on a textile or piece of furniture, to the patterns observed by scientists.

It was really lovely to see a friend’s work in the exhibition; designer and British bone china specialist Richard Brendon collaborated with Patternity to create two different cup and saucer combinations, “Warp” and “Reason”. I took tea out of each cup and got Richard to snap a picture.

Sum Table is the work of Toby Winteringham and Patternity, and will be the centre of some round table discussions held as part of the events programme. You can also see another of Toby’s pieces in an earlier post I did on Marquetry.
