Kurogoma

Kurogoma KurogomaLove these Nordic inspired jewelry patterns created by and sold under the brand name, Kurogoma.  Not exactly sure of the process but the material is listed as plastic and coated with resin. Each piece is then made into earrings, rings and brooches. Her shop is located here on Japanese handmade market, Minne, and you can also follow her on Twitter.

Admiring this bold collection of interior fabrics from Australian design house, Social Fabric. The brand features the work of Lynne Tanner whose mid-century modern influence is clearly reflected on these large scaled geometric patterns. What good luck that they ship internationally!

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows:  ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’

and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’
