36 Ashe Silk swatches
29 Sep 2015
Being a textile designer is a wonderful thing. Patterns, colours, rhythms, contrasts, interiors, motifs, fashion, objects, textures, tactility…these are my everyday ponderings…These are 36 Ashe silk swatches I recently gave to Akira Isogawa in April as part of a Fabric collection book. He told me at Telstra Perth Fashion Festival in September when I saw him, that he keeps them on his desk. Nice!
Florence Broadhurst Original Silk Screens in action!
16 Apr 2015
Here I am printing a piece of “Japanese Floral” from the original silk screen of Florence Broadhurst from the 70s. Because of my love and research for the work of Florence, custodians @signatureprints, David and Helen Lennie allowed me to print and take home this precious piece of Australian design history. Normally only new screens are used to preserve the older archive, so I’m feeling very very lucky right now! In fact when I asked David if he usually allowed people to print from the original screens he said “No, never. Not ever”. I think Florence must have been there in spirit today urging him on to share this with me!
