ROSE MARBLE LION

Artist: Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett's unique sense of colour and drive, combined with his desire to encourage others, has led to his reputation as a guru in the world of colour and textiles. Kaffe has dedicated the last 50 years of his life to the world of Knitting, Needlepoint and Patchwork, promoting these crafts through his own work and encouraging others to find their own creativity. He has produced over 30 publications from 'how to' books to colour in design, and also tours internationally giving patchwork colour workshops and inspirational lectures.

Kaffe became the first living textile artist to have a one-man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in 1988, which attracted such crowds that the Museum doubled attendance figures. The exhibition toured to nine countries: Finland, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Canada, USA and Iceland, where 5% of the total population attended! Kaffe teaches quilt-makers all over the world to work with colour in an instinctive way.

His beautiful Rose Marble Lion features Kaffe's favourite colour pink, painted as though the lion were created from seams of beautiful Rose Marble.

Rose Marble Lion was kindly sponsored by Ehrman Tapestry.
