Gillian Ayres. Her work is richly coloured and in fact her original scarf design contained many more colours. In order to make the scarf commercially viable we had to bring the number of screens down to ten and so when Gillian visited us at Beckford, she went through the design with us, pointing out exactly which shade of colours she wanted us to use.

Gourmet by Patrick Heron. This scarf was produced for a major exhibition of his work at the Tate in London in 1998. Unfortunately not well enough at the time to produce a new design, my father went to visit him and Patrick Heron chose this design (originally done in 1947) from his archive and then worked with James on re-colouring it for the exhibition.
