With so many stunning and beautiful designs coming to life, we have been keeping a journal of discovery and revival.
Our mission is to celebrate the world of past, hand drawn, Australian designs and share them with current and future designers and others who are lovers of art – and have some fun at the same time!
This design is called ‘Orinocco’ and was originally designed in 1890c and revived by the hand of Bruce Clark in the 1960’s.
It has four layers of different ink and when hand screen printed on a coloured fabric or paper, produces the fifth binding background colour.
We met with Claudia Chan Shaw, Sydney born creative who has a career spanning art and design, photography, curating, television and radio presenting, arts commentary and more. David and I will be speaking with her on her ARTS FRIDAY radio program this week.
We would like to thank Claudia for taking the time to invite us onto her program. She is an icon for the arts and design industry and we are so grateful for her interest and time.
Please tune into her program – ARTS FRIDAY – Friday 10:30am – noon
Listen online, or DAB+ digital radio, or download the Eastside Radio App.
Follow this incredible journey of a design from c1890’s to today – 130 years later, with Margaux Everett of Australian Museum of Design and Christine Berry who worked with Signature Hand Prints in the 1980’s. Christine was very much involved in the design studio, responsible for restoring original designs for architects, National Trust and others. Sometimes designs would be damaged, and Christine would reconstruct them by hand, and prepare them for hand printing for wallpapers.
