Window Walk | Jackie Moscovitch X Dirty Dozen
Designed for use as a wrap to carry a baby or toddler, this hand-dyed, hand-woven cloth is inspired by the colours of a eucalyptus tree. I have always been surrounded by eucalypts, exploring Melbourne's beautiful parks and during holidays spent in central Victoria. With so many different types of eucalypts, their diverse colours, textures and scents continue to fascinate me. The way eucalyptus trees change through the seasons has inspired my design for this piece: starting at the base of the tree, the colour evolves as we move along the trunk, over the layers of peeling bark and into the canopy, before exploding into pink as we reach the blossoms above.
My passion is creating one-of-a-kind hand woven textiles using heritage craft techniques. Each piece is handmade by me, in my studio in Melbourne, so every one is unique. I use natural fibres – wool, cotton and silk – to create unique pieces that are made to last a lifetime.
I have three looms; each one is different and appropriate for creating pieces of varying size and complexity.
This contemporary craft installation is hosted by Creative Spaces at the Dirty Dozen:
The Dirty Dozen in Campbell Arcade is one of Melbourne’s most intriguing exhibition spaces, located in an underground commuter walkway that runs from Flinders Street Station to Degraves Street.
