For FF this week I am going to introduce you the works of a Victorian designer called Christopher Dresser (I mean he was a Professor of Design as well, how cool). He designed rather back to basic images and objects, paring things down to their basic elements and drawing on those elements to create. His work is so different to what we normally associate with the Victorian aesthetic (of over the top fussiness and an emphasis on detail and beauty); but Dresser created his own sense of beauty in his work.
Christopher Dresser was a man ahead of his time. Check out his work . . .
and my favourite
I loved the basic design principals that he has emphasised in these botanical drawings. I love them so much so that I am currently working on some stitchery designs that encapsulate Dressers aesthetic here. I will keep you posted.
p.s. I just heard thunder, I love thunder storms, I hope we get a big one . . . though I doubt it.
