The patterns and colours of the Peigi waiscoat are inspired by the pebbles from Geodh’ a’ Cùibhrig (Patchwork Quilt Cove) in Lewis, a place which has featured in my work over the last thirty years.  Small, geometric pattern bands worked in various colour combinations depict the pebbles, each one as unique as human faces. Between each “pebble band” I depicted waving strands of seaweed that wash in and out with the tide. I echoed the repeated waving seaweed bands of the pattern in the ribs by working them in the same colours and giving them a little cable twist to portray that sense of movement.
