Inspiration: Eleanor Pritchard
This is she... the very talented Eleanor Pritchard... have you seen her stunning
weavings before? While I should really be crocheting, I've found myself mesmerised
by them lately.
It's strange that I haven't come across her work before seeing as she is so celebrated
in her native Britain and far abroad... Anyway, now that I have (finally) I do admit to
being completely smitten :)
And, of course, when I saw her studio I just wanted to live there! Isn't it amazing?
I love that her work comprises of strong geometric shapes and basic patterning.
There's a freshness to her designs... a kind of 'less is more' aesthetic carried
by bold colour combinations that highlight the design rather than smother it.
And she loves making cushions too, so she must be alright ;)
You can read more about Eleanor Pritchard and see more of her work on her
website and her blog.
