Antique lace surface design
Jill, I see the similarities. His tooth totems are a hoot. The software that brought this design to this point, even though I used several, was Pixarra's Twisted Brush. At first try it had some frustrating ways of doing things, but I love some of its features.
MG, I did finally find a rug printing place, but I won't mention it from a competitor's site -- Spoonflower has be SO-O good to us! And I'll bet they'll keep expanding the Spoon Kingdom, as they have put so much care and personal attention, with innovation, into all that they do.

This is gorgeous! Dreamy and exotic...your work reminds me of the painter Philip Taaffe, who's work is large in scale, rich ornamnetal motif...I wonder what software you use...
Yes, I empathize with the desire for the 'real' textiles. I was imagining one of my designs in velvet and another in wool. That is something that digital designs don't satisfy.....yet. I like for all my senses to be involved when working with materials.
However, wouldn't it be fun if Spoonflower or some other digital design business was available for personal carpet design? I'm guessing that may already be available but cost prohibitive for most.
It's so delightful and even empowering to see one's vision come to life in materials.
Hi MG, I met a Persian on a train once...does that count? I grew up with a beautiful Persian living room rug -- it might have been a Bidjar. Definitely an influence toward intricate work. I used a variety of software for this one, taking advantage of different pattern features. Now when I look at it, I wish it would turn into a real jaquard. I'm feeling like Gepetto, wishing I had the textile CAD behind me. Thank you for taking the time for supportive feedback!
I just get lost in these pieces...the whole collection. Maybe we shared a past life in Persia, as we both seem to love these richly complex old world patterns and designs...lol. I'm also smitten with the older Japanese fabric designs which have been so admired and influential in America's 20th C. designs and continue to hold sway as part of the minimalist, post modern and 'Zen' design phases. They are all so timeless and delicious. It is interesting to me how easily one can 'find' this rich complexity in the simplest things through the use of the mirror feature. So these patterns are potentially inherent in everything if the mirror perspective is applied. For me there is unending fascination and magic in that.
I love the glorious antique richness of this beautiful design!
Thank you so much! I ordered this one myself and it arrived in the mail yesterday... it will be useful to have around for the holidays.
Incredible! Love the whole Winters Past Collection!
