'bullfinches & berries' block-printed by hand ceiling and lampshades.
these three new designs - 'sea holly', 'queen anne's lace' and 'bullfinches & berries' can be found in my online shop on etsy - commissions are welcome, so please feel free to get in touch with your shade requirements.
oh i could watch this video all day long...marthe armitage's work is truly beautiful, her designs and printing methods are brill. i simply love the fact she's doing everything by hand and yes there are 'imperfections' where you can see the joins of the pattern repeat but that is the beauty of printing by hand, it's unpolished and charming. for me this highlights just how much work and skill is involved in producing her colourful, intricate wallpapers.
i hope i still feel as inspired to be block-printing by hand when i'm her age (and maybe even lucky to say my daughter works along side me!) - she is an inspiration and i admire her talent immensely, what a clever lady she is.

here's some designs i made back in june! after a lovely trip to pembrokeshire with my brood and my folks. we were blessed with gorgeous sunny days at the beach and when i returned home block-printed fishes came swimming out of my mind.
hand-printed in sea blue and coral red.
they make ideal gifts for little ones, adds a splash of colour to any nursery or bedroom ;)
