Featured Maker: Louise Tucker

Our Featured Maker from October – December 2018 is Louise Tucker.

Louise Tucker is a maker studio dedicated to the creation of contemporary woven products.

Inspired by traditional weaving techniques and organic forms, the PREN lighting range has been woven out of sustainably sourced specialist maple wood.  The design is finalised when the organic forms balance with the subtle beauty of the wood to create a refined simplicity, resulting in both a sculptural object and delicate light feature.

Inspired by the shifting patterns of light created by the PREN hand woven lighting range, the Speckle collection has been woven out of 100% merino lambswool to create a delicate texture.
