Decorex International is an annual trade exhibition of fabrics, furniture, lighting,wall and floorccoverings - and lots of other decorative elements for interior design.
It has been running for many years and its traditional stance has recently seen lots of updating and some innovative and beautiful products were on show this year. I showed there with Regina Heinz who makes most beautiful ceramic tiles http://www.ceramart.net/rmh/index.html
I worked closely with the laminators of my glassworks - T4 Design - to produce some new abstract fabrics and panels of glass for interior use.
Abstract design : Silver, gold, and blue.
They loved it and the reception was SO enthusiastic I have not had time to respond to everyone's individual enquiries. I am sorry!
The painted silk cloths can be hung flat against walls, or for bound wall panels - or for the voile, inner layer of curtaining. The fabric has been worked (etched or burn out or devore in technical terms) to introduce texture through a mix of transparency and opacity.
Light , weather and wet colour are the inspiration for the marks and intensity of colour - the cloth is painted by hand, to produce a fabric and image full of depth and a sense of fluidity -
This cloth can be laminated between two layers of toughened glass to produce freestanding glass panels , screens , door panels - windows - balustrades and anything your imagination can invent in a context where glass might be used in or out of doors.
