Juho Viitasalo

Love these simple sophisticated Nordic patterns created by Finish industrial designer Juho Viilasalo. He is currently living in Japan and is the chief designer for Propex Design, a design consultancy company in Osaka. He is also the owner and chief designer at Design Viitasalo Ltd. in Finland. The patterns have been used in smart phone cases and furoshiki (wrapping cloth) textile for the Japanese brand, Kotonowa.

Jane Robbins

Admiring these intricately cut paper collages created by UK based artist Jane Robbins. She studied
graphic design at Hornsey College of Art focusing primarily on printmaking. She later began to work in paper collage and with encouragement from family and friends decided to make it a full time career. Her unique and beautiful collage images are inspired by flat pattern, patchwork, and found objects. You can view more of her work on her website and on Instagram.

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.’
