The Spoonflower design challenge this week is a collaboration with East Fork Pottery.
"East Fork makes and sells a full range of beautiful, durable, ceramic dinnerware... from regional materials. The collection is unfussy and timeless—made to use every day and offered in a dynamic palette of year-round neutrals and fresh, seasonal colours."
The stipulation for the challenge was to create a colour palette featuring at least one of the following two collection colours as the main colour:
I was inspired by a flat lay image of a set of East Fork dishes and created my colour palette from that.
This is the final pattern design that I submitted:
One of the Spoonflower Design Challenges last year was "Pop Art Citrus". I created a repeat pattern that I called "Orange Blossom Pop" featuring groups of oranges with orange blossoms and leaves on a polka dot background. The original background was a shade of royal blue. I didn't really love it so I went back and made some adjustments and, as always, tried a few different colourways. One of those was the green background shown above. I really liked the bold motif so I took away the other elements to create a piece of wall art. Get the art print in my Redbubble shop and see the design on lots of other products here.
I like bold patterns, florals, foliage and bright colours.
