Jo Angell is a textile designer whose work explores the effects of light through laser cutting and layering materials. These include a canopy for outdoor shade, a cork blind and lampshades.
Jo wanted to use a new technology to produce the sculptural petal forms for her canopy. Each petal was cut from 1mm thick polypropylene and 1.5mm birch plywood at differing scales.
The canopy was designed for the award winning garden designer Jo Thompson for the Thrive charity garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. The garden won a gold medal.
You can make many decorative items including: decorative panels, fretwork, cladding and shade.
