Mary Setton Watts 'Angel'

Tapestry Designer: Karen Dixon

Mary Seaton Watts  'Angel'

This design is based on a detail from the bas-reliefs of angels that decorate the interior of the magnificent Watts Chapel, Compton, Surrey. The background is derived from the sinuous tendrils of vines that are woven intricately throughout the entire interior. It is a fabulous building, which is filled with Victorian symbolism. Mary Seton Watts, a great believer in socialist ideals, used the Chapel as a training vehicle for the Compton Villagers, eventually establishing the Compton Potters' Art Guild.

The design is worked on 12hpi Zweigart interlock canvas and measures 13 x 13 in (34 x 34 cm).
