Dovecot Collection

In 2008, the Dovecot Studios, renowned for collaborating with world-class artists and designers such as Cecil Beaton and David Hockney, invited Chris Clyne to produce the ultimate in wearable art.  The result – a sculptural installation piece in the form of an exquisite corset, flamboyant headpiece and a pair of hand-crafted shoes.  Throughout the project Chris Clyne worked closely with Master Weaver Naomi Anthoney who created the wonderful tapestry work from the original hand-painted patterns.  Each of the three intricate pieces involved in the installation required individual assembly.  Every stage of the perfectly formed tapestry corset was stitched by hand to ensure continuity of design

These iconic pieces were exhibited at 100% Design Scotland during Tokyo Design Week.  They are currently on display at the Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh.
