Christopher Duncan is a contemporary weaver. His work salvages the old ways, and reacquaints the beholder with our past. He takes an as it comes type of approach to his work where the fibres and design manifest through the long and intricate process.
Loom woven textiles are made with natural fibres that reveal a lineage to tribal textile influences. Christopher practices textile recycling techniques familiar to ancient Japan, where used, off-cut or decaying fabrics are repurposed into cloth for wear or decoration. Other fabric is sourced globally; from New Zealand possum-merino and alpaca wools, from India; organic cotton, linen and upcycled and worm friendly silks and finally premium cottons from Italy.
