Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett (born 1937 in San Francisco, California) is an American artist who is best known for his colourful designs in the decorative arts — needlepoint, patchwork, knitting, painting and ceramics. "[C]olour is his very medium, whatever the substance he uses."[1] He has resided in England since 1964.

Fassett received a scholarship to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston at the age of 19, but shortly left school to paint in London and moved there in 1964.

Fassett's work has attracted a considerable following. His work was the subject of a 1988 one-man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the first time a living textile artist had such a show there. The show proved so popular that it was successfully converted into an international travelling show that visited nine countries.

A prolific author of over a dozen books, Fassett concentrates on teaching the color and design stages of craftwork rather than the construction stage. In addition to his books, he has hosted craft-related television and radio programs for the BBC, including his own show, Glorious Color.
