Soundweaving_Zsanett_Szirmay_Folk_Embroidery_Pattern_And_Music_2

Soundweaving is the innovative use of traditional Eastern European embroidery patterns and laser cutting techniques in the creation of musical melodies. The Hungarian artist Zsanett Szirmay used laser cutters to create folk inspired designs along lengths of fabric. During a stint in a weaving workshop Zsanett was inspired by the punch cards used in weaving machines and recalled the barrel organs with their punched tapes from her childhood, and combined these two concepts in her soundweaving project. Each strip of punched fabric is fed through a music box translating every stitch of the embroidery pattern into a note, giving her work multiple dimensions. Not only do these digitally produced, delicate lacy patterns inspire the eye but the total experience stimulates all the senses. Hear the hypnotic melodies and tunes created by Zsanett & musician and composer Bálint Tárkány-Kovács here.

Today we are featuring the work of textile print designer Kerrie Cauvin in our ongoing series highlighting the fantastic designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. Based in Sydney, Australia Kerrie has been designing for the apparel industry for over 10 years. Inspired by vintage textiles, nature, amazing colour and digital possibilities, Kerrie loves to explore all forms of media, mixing her distinctive hand drawn quality with digital techniques.

“I love to experiment using hand created artwork, sketches, photos, watercolour/painterly textures mixing them with Photoshop, iPad apps and Illustrator. This allows a very loose and playful approach, embracing “mistakes” and how they produce amazing and interesting shapes and design. On the other hand, I also love vintage florals and quirky conversationals which require a more structured design approach, so my work is really a varied mix of these 2 ways of working. Colour is a big inspiration and I find great examples through nature, catwalks, art and photography.”

Patternbank particularly love her use of colour and bold pattern-making which suits a varied marketplace from women’s fashion, swimwear, stationery and kidswear. See more of her profile page here. The featured design above is Dark Forest and is available exclusively on the Patternbank Studio as are all the designs shown here.

 

Kerrie also has many designs in Patternbank Premium our exclusive area for key buyers in the fashion industry. Patternbank Premium offers one-off bespoke designs (once a design is sold it is instantly removed from the site), this section of the site is a members-only area where you need to apply for access.
