With a background in theatre and textiles, Jane creates artwork for public spaces. A sense of colour, theatre and a fascination with textiles are strands that run through all her work. Recent projects include creating lounges with talking chairs, hospital waiting rooms with larger than life plant-forms, furniture for an oak wood and a colour scheme for 1960s tower blocks. Her work is often made for particular places and our current stock of Map Cushions continues this tradition.
There are 3 cushions showing Hebden Bridge, depending on whether you prefer to have a large scale view of the town, more of the surrounding hills, or one that shows all of the Hardcastle Crags valley. The images Jane uses are all from 1953 Ordnance Survey maps.
Cushions are 15″ square. The front of each is printed with a detail from an original vintage Ordnance Survey map and the back is plain unbleached linen in a natural stone colour.
A small number of cushions are printed on organic white cotton. These are backed with organic crossweave cotton in a variety of colours. The fabric is handwoven in India and has slight irregularities in the weave. All the cushion pads are filled with feathers and the complete cushions are currently £48.
Interest in the Map Chair Jane made for the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, which is now in the Town Hall, led her to create cushions printed with vintage maps of the town and an increasing number of other places.
