I've decided to challenge myself with an exciting project, inspired by the title of Jules Verne's book and named it "Around the world in 80 canes". From my little studio I am going to visit countries, cultures and explore themes that will be my inspiration in this project; I will be focusing mainly on color, pattern and ambiance from each place.
* To design and create polymer clay cane collections inspired from each place I will visit, until I reach 80 canes.
** To design an inspiration board for every country/place/theme.
*** To share with you the inspiration and the design process behind each collection.
**** To inspire you to create with joy :-)
The Netherlands - The Delft Collection - inspiration board
I enjoy making inspiration boards for my projects; this method helps me to focus on the essence of whatever my inspiration subject is. I always choose visuals that are deeply touch my core and stimulate my creative side.
The first place I chose to visit is a city located in the province of South Holland (the Netherlands) and known for its Blue pottery, it is Delft. Delft pottery, also known as Delft Blue; blue and white pottery made in and around Delft from the 16th century. Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery; it includes pottery objects such as plates, ornaments and tiles.
Obviously the combination of White and Blues and the simple, yet classic patterns are the main theme in this collection.
So let's begin...
The first polymer clay cane is a blue rose cane, it is serene and always classic.
Introducing the Delft collection
this collection has 9 canes
(71 to go...)
