Abstract

Research Background
Mary Schoeser, a leading authority in the field of textiles internationally, is Honorary President of the UK Textile Society; has worked with English Heritage, the Museum of Art, New York; Liberty of London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Her previous books include World Textiles: A Concise History, Silk, Sanderson, Rozanne Hawksley published by Thames & Hudson. The Collection of the Design Museum at the University of California, Davis has been a key source for this text. Schoeser's recent research publication TEXTILE: the Art of Mankind is focused on the diversity, complexity, role and 'continuum of creativity' represented by textile practice throughout its history.
Research contributionIn 2011 Mary Schoeser sought an interview with me as part of her research toward TEXTILES: the Art of Mankind. She refers extensively to interview materials gathered with me and had cited interview commentary from me in Chapter 5: Added Dimensions - pages 379 and 412 including a colour plate of my work Otherwise: fragile facts and beautiful fictions. 2011 (plate 84). 
Research Significance The significance of this major publication by Mary Schoeser lies in its scope and extensive analyses of the complex relationship of contemporary and historical Textile practice world-wide. It contextualises key aspects of my PhD creative practice research and locates it within the wider field of international contemporary and historical practice. Distribution worldwide by Thames and Hudson ensures this publication will be included in all major Libraries, Museums and Galleries internationally and become a key research text in the field of textile, remaining so for many years.
