As I have mentioned before, this term we were given a brief from the Hand and Lock 2016 embroidery competition, for which I choose to study the work of glass sculptor, Chihuly. As I was particularly unsatisfied with my sketchbook and was afraid that my thought process wasn’t clear enough to others, I decided instead to start working on loose papers and create pinboards, in other terms make “Sketchboards”. The boards are sectioned chronologically and in themes, visually showing the steps I am taking towards my final designs.
This first pinboard is composed of my primary research of Chilhuly. When studying his work, I found that there were several different areas I could look into, his work in the botanical gardens, his sea life inspired cylinders and his colourful paintings.
