A practical introduction to the techniques of contemporary carpet design

Walking on Art explores contemporary carpet design from a practitioners viewpoint, describing through techniques and illustrations Deirdre Dysons fourteen-year journey from figurative painter to carpet designer.

A foreword by Professor Sir Christopher Frayling contextualizes Dysons award-winning work within discussions about art and design, and then Dyson herself reflects on her long experience of designing exquisite luxury carpets. The chapter Techniques introduces the traditional methods that create these carpets including hand knotting, hand tufting, and carving, and how these conventions can be manipulated to create stunning effects. Process then explores the stepsfrom inspiration to makingthat lie behind any design. These chapters are followed by colorful illustrations of Dysons extensive collections. Here are fanciful butterfly motifs alongside geometric patterns and floral designs, brought together in one stunning collection. 167 illustrations
