Clovehitch

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop

Lucy Wayman’s public sculpture Clovehitch, displays the artist’s fascination with craft techniques, such as weaving, knotting and macramé. Commissioned for the Edinburgh Art Festival 2019 this work continues to provide the public with a thought provoking and unexpected encounter with contemporary art as they move about the city.

The work, created from marine rope, follows Wayman’s interest in the industrial and historic uses of rope, connecting ideas of systems, control and release. Her approach to making mirrors the repetitive, industrial processes that originally produced the materials, but produces objects that are recognisable from the domestic realm. Her work revolves around material constraints, contrasts, and forms.

Supported by Sustrans, through their ArtRoots programme.
