I’ve been going through some of my old artwork and came across a rather handsome dragon…and realised I never uploaded a finished version of my earlier WIP
I really thought hard about the colours and fell in love with the blue/green one, a little untypical for a dragon, but fit well…as a useless nugget of info when inverted its blue and pink!
Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.
I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.
Introducing my new swing tag [I’m so excited about these!] the wonderful people at printed.com managed to print swing tags for me and they match my new business cards – which had be changed when I changed my domain. If you have yet to discover printed.com I fully recommend them, all of their products are finished to such an impeccably high standard.
After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.
These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
