thread architecture - Amber Lucy
Former architect collaborating and creating works of site-specific architectural installations and sculptural objects of thread and rope.
Recent abstract body of work explores the allure of 'hand' of architect's evocative architectural sketches and concepts. Continually exploring cross-pollination of rope and industrial materials with traditional crafts of embroidery, weaving and knotting.
Amber's most notable work can be found in the award winning architectural refurbishment of 161 Collins Street, Melbourne, by Bates Smart architects, which consists of large scale hand woven screens within the atrium of the T&G building.
The works are crafted out of Boyd Heritage Studios in Naarm/Melbourne.
