Randall Darwall (1948-2017) was a master colorist and weaver whose hallmark is an extraordinarily refined aesthetic. He was one of contemporary craft’s finest weavers, bringing an intelligence and liveliness to his work. He saw his goal as “not just making patterns, but giving people something to think about.” For Darwall, dyeing and weaving was a way to set up a conversation between colors; when the cloth is worn, it becomes kinetic sculpture. Darwall celebrated more than 25 years together with life‐partner and designer, Brian Murphy, a testament to a joyous, enduring relationship to work and living that colored his work. He was one-of-a-kind and we loved him.
