Panel, entitled Refractions, by Jill McOwat

This nylon and felt panel entitled 'Refractions' was made by the artist Jill McOwat in 1984.

The panel features a white textured square with touches of colour. The square is itself made up of 36 smaller squares of nylon organza formed by a kind of smocking. The square is mounted on a white background of man-made fabric with strips of coloured felt.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
