Fay McCaul & Kia Utzon-Frank

Curved Twists is an innovative and experimental collaboration between RCA graduates Fay McCaul and Kia Utzon-Frank.

Fay is uniting modern materials with knitting techniques to create diverse fabrics for partitions and artworks. Kia is a goldsmith and product designer and has a strong architectural and sculptural thread running through her multidisciplinary work. By exploring materials and techniques, Kia and Fay hope to alter people’s perceptions of craft. Their work has merged into a colour-changing, hand-made art installation that not only encourages the viewer to question, play and interact with the structure but also demonstrates functionality.
