Tay Series III Small Silk Scarf

Dundee Contemporary Arts



This beautiful silk scarf is part of a capsule collection by local artist and designer Joanna Craig, designed exclusively for DCA Shop.

In collaboration with our Shop team, she has created three abstract designs inspired by Dundee and its relationship with the river that runs alongside it. 

"This collection came directly from my translation of the city; the energy, the vibrancy, a little darkness and a whole lot of bright. I spent time studying its edge at the Tay, stood looking out across the water and feeling the city radiate out; the intensity of life behind me, the huge high skies above. This became the language, the energy I wanted to communicate with my colours and brushstrokes." Joanna Craig

These silks have been printed and finished entirely in Scotland and are available in three different designs:
