NIGHT 369 – THE STORY OF THE EBONY HORSE

The Geometry of Knots

I don’t often talk about geometry; lockdown made me go back to basics, of which geometry is an essential part: my relationship to geometry is that it is something alive. A tool to be used, not necessarily an end in itself since I am not a geometer. Geometry is a living thing, winding itself through the weaving of these knots. Something to be experienced only when tying them – the finished, tied knot is a memory of this past geometrical ins and outs and roundabouts. Sometimes 2D geometry gives way to 3D, as in my all-time favourite knot, the button knot (coming soon, also to a brush near you as I update my Brushes packaging and phase out the dodgy wax, slowly slowly!)
