Aqueous Tranquillity [Read more]
Digitally embroidered linen
This is a close up of a digitally embroidered linen design created for soft furnishing purposes. It is a geometric repeat pattern that was inspired by the erratic patterns of crashing waves along the shore. I wanted to promote this design as It's one of my favourites because of its simplicity and neutral colour palette allowing it to be very versatile when paired with other fabric designs. It was also my favourite because it was created by one of my favourite textile techniques, digital embroidery, all before the challenges of covid-19 happened.
Ecstatic wall covering
A painted repeat design, enhanced through cad to create an exciting, geometric wall covering design. The drawing was influenced from the shapes and patterns created from crashing waves along the shore.
Experimental wall covering
A copper repeat printed on dyed blue linen with contrasting handmade fluid ceramic sequins appliqued on. This piece was created during covid-19 and without a ceramic workshop so I had to problem solve and be resourceful to come up with alternatives such as a spray on gloss to the painted ceramics instead of a fired glaze finish.
Molded copper design
A complimentary moulded copper design to enhance the copper throughout the ecstatic sub-theme.
A hand-painted acid dyed silk with hand embroidery and fringing details.
An exhilarating design which oozes drama with textured elements throughout the dyed silk that are intensified by the contrasting embroidery and soft fringing.
Experimental oxidised copper
A close up of the textural surface qualities created by the scientific process of oxidizing copper. A technique which really showcased the intense blue and copper in the ecstatic sub-theme's colour palette.
A dyed linen with a linear print and hand-embroidered details
A design from the moody sub-them that is versatile and works well with other designs throughout the entire collection. The deep blues and almost black navys convey the sullen feel for the moody sub-theme. The small details of fringe add texture and merge the print with the background linen colour.
Acid dyed silk
A hand-painted acid dyed silk. The choice of material brings a reflective quality to the collection that is distinctly reminiscent of water as it catches the light. Not only this but the smooth silky feel to the fabric makes you think of water with its fluid qualities.
Aqueous Tranquillity has explored the link between interior design and well-being, both topics I am strongly interested in. The project consists of a collection of innovative and contemporary textile designs that respond to the theme of Aqueous Tranquillity by examining water and how it's qualities can impact ones mood. The collection has been divided into three sub-themes; ecstatic, calm and moody.
