stained glass

I've been looking at stained glass windows and flower shapes within them for inspiration for my current project these are just a few i like for shape and colour they have used in them. 

Agustina Woodgate

 These rugs by Agustina Woodgate are amazing and really made me think about my own work. Even though i'm not doing textiles the way the rugs are put together brings out shapes that can be interpreted as flowers which is what i'm trying to do and bring out within my own work.

ceramic inspiration

I love these ceramics, as i'm thinking of doing ceramics for my final degree show these have really inspired me and gave me ideas off i can fit my stain glass flowers designs into ceramics. They've helped me think about the scale and placement and how i want the plates to look.

stain glass flowers

I've been investigating flowers and different ways of drawing them, i like that they look like stain glass images and less like basic flower shapes. Been using different colour schemes and mixing them with the black outlined twines and flower stems.

Love these ceramic designs by donna wilson. I'm wanting to do ceramics for my final project at university. I love the playful fun side of these and the simple use of colour and shape.

I've started drawing silhouette birds with flowing twines. I wanted to create the idea of movement and rhythm in my designs, then placed the coloured flowers to soften the design.
