Pots and Kettle

 This textile work is in York Art Gallery.  Apparently it's a collaboration between Alice Kettle, a textile artist, and Alex McErlain, a ceramicist.  The gallery blurb says that she took his drawings and, "using computer technology and machinery normally used for stitching blazer badges"(!) turned them into textiles. 

I like the line drawing effect, and the feel that it's a drawing of an archaeologist's table at a very prolific dig.  I'd love to know if he used the drawings to create jugs, and what they looked like if he did.
