'In my twenties I found out that some of my ancestors were French Huguenot silk weavers and trimmings manufacturers, living and working in Spitalfields in the 1700s. This was a thrilling discovery and gave me a strong connection to London when I first moved to the city. I began to imagine the different textile forms that my ancestors may have created in silk, cotton, linen and wool, which led me to make 'Tassel'. This is a sensual work, rich in colour: the span of elements sway gently on the wire supports.’ Anna Ray
