Ashe Print Designs – Spot the moth

17 Nov 2016

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this print yet – but I do LOVE it.  This is a section of a larger repeating print – look hard to spot the moth… This intricate Ashe design uses Shibori textures and ‘multi-cultural’ flowers XXinstamultifly

New Ashe Print

04 Aug 2011

Here is a detail from one of my new print designs “Antipodean Orientalism”, or “Paradise Lost”…it has two titles! Look closely to discover the clues to the geographical location; the Sydney Harbour bridge lurks amongst other buildings, such as churches, mosques and pagoda’s. Look even closer to see the motif’s reference to pollution; steaming cooling tanks and spewing drains are included to create a gritty twist in this otherwise picturesque oriental print….Antipodean

Silk Dupion is a wonderful textile. It has a distinctive texture and body to it that cannot be reproduced in a polyester fabric. This image shows a detail from a silver Kimono style draping and my Wisteria print.Silver_kimono (1)

Ashe design journals

21 Mar 2011

My trusty journal’s are full of ideas, sketches, schemes, plots and pictures…A quick sketch can capture the seed of a great idea…to quickly put it down in black and white so that I can return to the idea later and continue developing the threads….the initial sketch for the “waratah” image is here..along with cut outs and other scribbles…Desk_shot

Antipodean Orientalism

19 Mar 2011

Ashe textile designs have always been heavily influenced by Eastern cultures – particularly Japanese and Chinese textile traditions. Another constant for me has been an interest in Australian motifs of Flora and Fauna – although – these can be tricky to work with…I don’t want to create kitsch “Australiana”!…So I have a challenge in trying to design surfaces which both contain an Oriental aesthetic and a sense of contemporary Australian design…Here is a “waratah” image I am “orientalising”…Some more development needed….but it’s getting there!waratah
