705 Heidi Lichterman
My work is in international collections. I sell directly from my studio now as I enjoy meeting people and discussing the projects directly. I weave, dyeing my silk using the Ikat technique. My scarves and shawls are about colour interactions which I am constantly challenging. the textures and light refractions are important to the final piece.
Abstract acrylic paintings of the Fens near me. I want to show the feelings that this flat, often bleak landscape evoke. Wet, windy, dark in atmosphere with huge skies: the details of the hedges and who hides there, the lodes and who swims there, the fields and who gallops there.
"Twilight On The Hudson". Commissioned for a private home, this Ikat dyed silk and stainless steel wire wall hanging reflects the serene atmosphere of the view of the river in Croton-On-Hudson, New York, USA.
Silk Noil Shawls
Handwoven, Ikat dyed silk noil shawls. Luxurious and versatile, they are useful for a summer's evening or a winter's day for elegance and warmth. The silk noil is the inner, short fibre of the silk cocoon which creates a soft, slightly fluffy yard very good as an insulator. These shawls are hand washable.

My wall hangings have been commissioned around the world in corporate and public spaces. I currently use copper and stainless steel wire to create a sculptural dimension. My Ikat dyed and handwoven silk scarves and shawls are sophisticated in the play with rich colour and luxurious feel.
