Catherine Hammerton

8 Jul

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.

Interesting Wallpaper

14 Feb

The images below show wallpaper by Piet Hein Eek. I particularly like the wallpaper as it has a recycled theme. Finding the right setting for such bold imagery however could be difficult. For further information regarding Piet Hein Eek follow this link: http://www.pietheineek.nl/en

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tears Off by ZNAK (shown below) is in my opinion a fun, inventive take on wallpaper which can be customized. I think it is a brilliant idea. I particularly like the first image, which shows a child’s painting on a white wall being transformed in to an interesting unique piece of art.



5 Fabulous Finds

7 Jan

Below is some information about 5 artists/designers that I think are interesting and definitely worth a look at. I have also included some images of their work and links to their websites.

Lisa Kellner

I first came across the work of Lisa Kellner when I was carrying out some self-motivated research in to heat set fabrics and unusual sculptures. Lisa Kellner lists decay, erosion and disease as inspiration for her work, which in my opinion is rather unusual, but also very interesting.

Sandra Backlund

I think the knitted creations of Sandra Backlund are original, contemporary and unique despite her use of traditional techniques. Much of her sculptural knit distorts the natural silhouette of the human body.

Claire Coles

Claire Coles designs a whole range of beautiful products from bespoke embroidered wallpapers to gift cards, mugs and pictures. Flora and fauna seem to greatly inspire her creations.

Nora Fok

Nora Fok creates fascinating jewellery using nylon-fishing line. The structures she creates are delicate and very intricate. I particularly like her head and neckpieces that can be viewed on her website:

Jonas Samson

The creation by Jonas Samson that captured my attention is light emitting wallpaper, which I only discovered recently when researching responsive and smart materials for my dissertation proposal. Not only could the wallpaper be a fun alternative to a lamp but it could also be seen as an eye catching contemporary piece of art. It could also save a lot of energy if solar powered technology could be incorporated!
