Known for her intricate woven rugs and the abstract macro photography that inspires them, Tania has now applied this medium to a series of limited edition solid metal prints.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art with an MA in woven textiles, Tania Johnson has continued to experiment with different materials from fabric to solid surfaces; always using her own photography as the basis for her designs - Tania was captivated when she discovered the effect of her photographic images on metal. She has continued to explore ideas and effects and is now introducing her first collection: METAL FLORA

These images acquire a shimmering reflective quality when printed directly on to the metallic surface. The result beautifully echoes the sheen and matt effect of the silk and wool rugs that Tania creates so deftly. These wall pieces are striking because the contrast between a hard metal surface and the application of a subtle and soft image creates this thoroughly original artwork

The METAL FLORA collection is inspired by nature – the hints of leaves viewed through misty glass textured with age. The prints can be used both indoors and out.

Tania comments: “I started experimenting at college and over the years have developed translating my photography from tactile woven pieces to printing on different surfaces - the final finish of these metal prints really appeals to me. The hint of colour makes them warm and in total contrast to the tough metal material they use. They sit so well next to our rugs as a complementary collection.”
