Clyde Olliver, Little Knot stitched slate

works between the disciplines of sculpture and embroidery, since typically it consists of stitched slate or other suitable stone.

Clyde Olliver.This innovative maker and teacher creates large panels using whole slates and stitched-on shards or small fragments like tesserae which are sewn onto canvas backing to make 'quilts'. Lately they have been stitched to slate spines to present elegant, long fossil-like images and differently shaped, carved pieces of stone are grouped on shelves like museum collections of ancient or ritual domestic objects.
