i n s p i r i n g


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.
