An unofficial theme was set for the MATS Bootcamp for April as underwater themed and dishware.
I’m not sure I like how uniform the symmetry is as the original sketch was much more organic – think I might try redrawing it.
repeat pattern with various size anemones:
‘Traditional’ style plate layout.
band of colour around the edges with anemone motifs in circular formation – the ones underneath are the tentacles radiating from the centre.
These are not quite what I envisaged when I started … I’m not sure if thats a good thing – I need a rethink.
here’s another plate mockup set – I just added my Sea Anemone to some plates I found on the internet (fab plates!!) sea coloured one on Anthropologie website and white dinner plate is Portobello-porcelain from The White Company – tried varying the size of the graphic as well – I really want to re-draw this whole thing as I preferred the original sketch where it was far more organic and something very liquid about the ‘mouth’ part – this doesn’t seem very ‘mouth’ like at all… the mouth of a Sea Anemone.
I need to do some cups too 🙂
update: actually I decided to make a more complicated repeat… I’ve made several and now I have a sudden urge to poke my eyes out as I’ve been up all night! gargh.
Anyway the idea was to add it to the Spoonflower colouring wallpaper competition – I’ve uploaded it but I doubt it’s what they have in mind for kids to play with 😉
I think it’s too small – ok… I’ll postpone poking my eyes out (it’s a shape you can’t swop your eyes out for a bit!) and see if I can change it.
