A collection of swan figurines displayed on a bedroom window sill at National Trust property Newark Park inspired this striking design. The pure lines of the porcelain, arranged like swans on a lake, was begging to be drawn into a pattern. Despite being one of the smallest of all of Susie's carved blocks, and the simple composition and the bold contrasts result in a striking, somehow contemporary repeat. Newark Swans is a single colour fabric printed digitally in the UK, from scans of original hand printed designs, carved into lino by Susie Hetherington.
