Meet Seven Swans a-Swimming

Design Inspiration

Laura-Kate Chapman’s design is based on Seven Swans a-Swimming. It features 21 swans (a multiple of seven) in a repeating, stylised pattern. She has concentrated on the form and shape of a swan’s body, particularly its iconic long neck and impressive wing span. The Snowman himself has been transformed into a swan – he has an orange nose like a swan’s beak and stands in a pool of icy blue water.
