The reason I so enjoyed this months assignment was due the unique challenge of bringing two disparate themes together into a cohesive collection. The brief was to create a 'mash-up' of haveli, suzani or otami references with crustaceans. These designs were then to be placed onto plates. I was particularly drawn to the suzani's of Uzbekistan, for their gorgeous floral medallions, and used them as my main inspiration. I used a sweet pink palette to offset the scary crustaceans against vintage shaped plates.
