Caro Pattle — Woven Two Handled Jug in Blue
Caro Pattle is an emerging craftsperson based in Naarm/Melbourne. Pattle practice explores materiality. Her current works focus on coiled and knotted vessels woven from synthetic-blend textiles. Inspired by forms found in domestic antiquities, the vessels are liminal objects which attempt to collapse past forms with present materiality. The vessels playfully muddle organic/synthetic and past/present binaries, presenting a divergent material cultural legacy for future beings to unearth from the anthropocenic strata.
Pattle projects span large-scale public art installation through to objects for interior worlds. Pattle graduated with a Bachelor of Textiles at RMIT in 2019. The recipient of several travel grants and industry prizes, she was named the Australian Textile Graduate of the Year by the Design Institute of Australia for 2020 and was shortlisted for the Design Files Awards 2021.
