I have just completed a 5 week intense course designing for Home Decor products with artists and other designers from all around the world. My chosen theme to base my designs on was country inspired 'Farm Fresh'. Each week we had to design products made out of a different substrate, which included metal, fabric, glass, ceramics and wood. As well as the country farm theme I decided to limit my designs so that they would be suitable for a garden party and outdoor entertaining.
Week One - Metal Products
Week one was metal and I started with a couple of days drawing farm birds, herbs and insects. My final metal product designs consisted of a plate, mugs and a pitcher where I incorporated my favourite drawings for a country farm yard feeling.
