The beautiful building within which the residents were fortunate to work in during their time in Venice is full of pattern. Bethan was drawn to the mix between real and imitation, having to knock and touch each doorframe to find out which marble was painted and which was real.
The fabric Seamless is inspired by this experience, taking patternation from traditional Floor techniques of Venice (seminato) especially the work by local Artisan Roberto Patrizio. It mixes photographic images of paper marbling with mark making imitating the textures and colours Bethan photographed around Venice.
