Leonie Verbrugge | illustrator & book designer | Embroidered spirograph
In the three pictures that Irma Bulkens and I chose for our project (see my latest blogpost) this is number two. A picture that Irma took on a trip to Morocco. In a small village in the Rif Mountains she was surprised by this still life.

A Verbrugge and Kroost design… a geometrical still life

In the three pictures that Irma Bulkens and I chose for our project (see my latest blogpost) this is number two. A picture that Irma took on a trip to Morocco. In a small village in the Rif Mountains she was surprised by this still life.

 

Keper-ontwerp-marokko-01A careful layed out composition of a water jug and a piece of soap lying in the sun. As if the water is warming for a bath yet to come.

The pattern of the basket under the water jug was the motive I used for embroidering the geometrical forms. It reminded me of endless forms I used to make with a spirograph. Inspired? Try it yourself.
I based my colour palette on the pastel colours of the objects in the picture.

We find it interesting to see how the spaciousness in this picture and the geometrical editing (again with needle and thread, I love it!) meet in this image.
What is your idea about it? Let us know and leave your comment under this post. We like it!
