About Sky Carter...
Sky Carter is a Sydney based free form weaver and colour designer.
Part of the New Craft Movement (a global ‘happening’ where art meets design meets craft) she chooses weaving and tapestry as her vehicle for creative expression, motivated by the textural and sculptural effects that can be achieved.
All her pieces are unique one offs influenced by global or local trends that Sky observes around her. Her works are also a response to deep internal forces and obsessions (pink and gold!). Sky is also a collector and curator of ‘things’ she loves, organized and harmoniously styled clutter, and has a strong interior design philosophy of layering, layering, layering! Her woven wall art is a natural extension of this.
