While their signature work is very different, Carla, Chequita, and Helen are makers with a common fascination for honest materials, deeply researched details, inspirations from classic patterns and forms, labour-intensive techniques and cultural influences. These makers combine the past and the present, combining traditional crafts and tools with modern design methods and techniques. They enjoy the meditative repetition of crafts like embroidery or welding, yet also experiment out of curiosity, not rushing a work, in search of perfection with hidden difficulty, a deception of appearance. Their work shares that it mirrors desire to seek out the risky feeling of never knowing how a piece will turn out until it is completely finished. They build on family tradition, the hereditary teachings of mothers and grandmothers, combining the force of symbolism, pattern, symmetry, colour, scent, precision and rhythm with the intricacy of delicate surfaces and structures.
