Original patterned textiles, inspired by the flora and fauna of Wales
Hi, my name is Eddie and I am a designer-maker based in beautiful Mid Wales. My work is mainly influenced by the gorgeous scenery around my home which is situated alongside Glyndwr’s Way on the edge of the Dyfi Valley. Memories of family camping trips to the Gower and Pembrokeshire are also mined for creative purposes. As a keen walker I am often out and about gathering found objects and taking photographs wherever I go. Twigs, leaves, feathers and even pieces of bone are then use as inspiration for mixed media collages and heat transferred prints.
The completed works are then scanned and digitally manipulated into repeat surface designs which are sent to a printing company in the UK to produce bright textiles full of detail and colour.
All patterned fabric used to create accessories, cushions and throws is of my own design. Every item is stitched by me on a vintage and often temperamental sewing machine. Please contact me you if would like anything custom made or a particular size. I love a challenge.
