Elizabeth Prickett

Elizabeth's Work
Originally uploaded by notionnanny.
Elizabeth approaches her work in an orthodox way. “I don’t like colour,” she said. “The people who are attracted to this type of work are people who like discipline and monotones.” Once when there was a “hiccup” in the production of the appropriate linen, she grew her own flax and spun and wove it into the fabric she needed. Elizabeth decided long ago never to sell her work, since she figured that even at one pound per hour, people would never pay what it took her to complete a piece. But she, like Owen Jones, enjoys the interactivity of teaching, and relies on it to make a living in addition to sales of her book and a series of postcards.

Here are examples of Elizabeth's Ruskin lace work.
