Waller & Wood
Wearable art – original handpainted silk clothes and scarves – as well as ceramics, glass artworks and textile paintings
Internationally acclaimed textile artist Carole Waller, whose work can be seen in the V&A and has been sold in Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Bergdorf Goodman, creates wearable art. Beautiful, handpainted silk clothing and scarves, designed in her studio just outside of Bath.
She makes a new collection of original pieces several times a year and produces just one of each piece.
Her range of silk scarves tell stories from Bath’s past, with glimpses of Roman pavements, medieval drawings, Palladian architecture, snippets from Jane Austen’s diaries…
She uses every offcut of cloth to cover hand-covered notebooks, candles, soaps and all sorts of goodies for one of a kind gifts.
Did I mention her glass artworks? Beautiful paintings on silk pressed between layers of toughened glass to create freestanding panels, doors, windows and tables.
Her ceramicist husband Gary Wood makes beautiful stoneware ceramics, from drinking vessels inspired by Japanese tea bowls to wall-based art pieces and small sculptures.
