Today I have been doing some research to put my latest finds in my sketchbook.
I thought I would share with you some of the things I have found today and have really inspired me.....
This is an artist someone told me to check out recently.
Coralie Bonnet's work is really inspiring and is very similar to what I have been doing for the last couple of weeks. It was surprising and reassuring to see someone doing something similar. Its encouraged me to continue in the direction I have been.
She uses very traditional embroidery techniques but is pushing the boundaries by working on different materials, materials that embroidery wouldn't usually be seen on.
I like how she has painted a colour for her embroidery to sit on. This is a good idea as it makes it stand out more.
This is some work I came across whilst searching design sponge. It is wood and felt rugs made by designer Monika Jarg.
She drills holes into the wood and weaves directly into the wood with string.
Its a really simple idea but looks really effective.
