The Cutting & Stitching Edge – Logan McLain

Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge - the best textile art in the world

Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge, where we showcase people whose embroidered creativity is fresh and new!

Logan McLain is a textile artist from Ireland.


He graduated in 2008 with an MA in Textile Design and has won several awards for his contemporary embroidery.


His contributions to a 2008 exhibition entitled “Faith in Form” are fine examples of contemporary embroidery. The irreverence of his work highlights some of the idiosyncracies of mainstream religion.


It is clear from his work that Logan has a great deal to offer the genre. I love the use of negative space on some of his pieces.


You can find out more about him on his website. This might be the first you’ve heard of him, but I’m sure it won’t be the last!
