I first came across Catherine Hammerton’s customized, bespoke wall coverings whilst carrying out research for my dissertation. Featured in the particular book I was reading entitled ‘Green Design’ was some beautiful wallpaper created, by Catherine Hammerton, using a range of recycled materials such as vintage lace and envelopes. Catherine Hammerton also creates intricate 3-dimensional wallpaper, colourful, quirky soft furnishings and other home accessories.

Yuken Teruya

Japanese artist Yuken Teruya creates these beautiful cutout trees from paper bags and toilet rolls.

The first 3 images shown below are from the project entitled ‘Rain Forest’. Yuken Teruya turns an everyday waste item in to something attractive.














The second project I particularly like is called ‘Notice-Forest’ the paper cut trees end up on the inside of the paper bag, holding the bag open. The creations are intricate, beautiful and unusual.

The Sketchbook Project-Page 1

22 Dec

I have had my black A5 moleskin sketchbook for ages but I have been so busy, I have only just got round to completing the first page, well I might add a little something to it yet but this is what I have so far:











The sketchbook theme as I mentioned in a previous post is ‘if you lived here’ so I decided to begin with a typically British red phone box as the sketchbook is an international project based in Brooklyn with over 28,000 artists from 94 countries. I was first inspired by the red phone box when I was at school and working on a project entitled ‘Windows and Doors’ below are some photographs of the work I still have from that project. The first piece was created using oil pastels. The second piece is made from layers of card cut in to specific shapes using a craft knife, I have also included two macro photographs showing more detail and the original photograph of the bank window which I worked from.





















I intend to fill the rest of this sketchbook (by the deadline on January 15th) with stitch, drawing, painting and more collage. I am thinking about creating pages inspired by sheep, teacups and teapots, cows, tractors, sunsets, lakes, red-letter boxes and beautiful scenery-all things that remind me of home.
