About the Edition
A 100% superfine Cashmere wool blanket in a Jacquard knit technique by artist Jonas Wood. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birdseye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel.
About the Artist
Jonas Wood (b. 1977, Boston, Massachusetts) is a contemporary American painter, who paints large-scale works of interior scenes, still-life and landscapes. Through his partially abstract painting technique, Wood uses overlapping colour and form to flatten out interludes of space within his intricate compositions.
