Buckingham Palace

For the initial illustration 'Circumambulate' Amber drew upon the rolling clouds seen through the glass ceiling of the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace as her starting point.

She created rolling or spiralling buttercup strewn 'pleasant pastures' interwoven with wild roses as an earthly reflection of the celestial skies. In the detail Amber worked with stylised archetypal floral forms alluding to fragrance, and hoped to suggest the sweet scent of roses and an imagined melding of the Buttercup and Narcissus. 

Amber Khokhar (MA 2005), who, through her studies at The Prince's school of Traditional Arts, realised her ability to create motifs informed by the patterns of nature, was commissioned to design a series of hand-loomed silk and wool carpets.

After HRH The Prince of Wales saw her work, he suggested that she produce the design for a carpet for Buckingham Palace.

After many site visits, she completed detailed scale drawings of her design, which was created to suggest rolling patterns covered with wild roses and stylised flowers. A large (40m long) carpet was completed an was installed by Linney Cooper in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
