The Ring Cycle Since early 2015 the conceptual strand of Jo McAllister's practice is sustained by The Ring Cycle, an ongoing series of exuberant, narrative rings based on words that end in -ring (Flowering, Feathering, Powdering). New rings each year provide varied challenges not encountered in her design-led work and the reflexive nature of the project enriches her practice and widens her audience.
