These rugs have been created for many years now, at a rate of less than one a year, for three main reasons.
•Firstly to encapsulate in visual form ideas that have interested me, many of which are tackled in this website. •Secondly to have a diagram which I can use as the basis of a workshop. Many of these are in a circle of people sitting on the ground in a circle in a tent and I like the informality and matter of factness of a carpet that can be walked on. •Thirdly the rugs formed the basis of Yuletide cards that I sent to family and friends each year
