About this project

Encrusted focuses on the idea of surface, fabrics embellished with layers of hand-stitched and manipulated detail. The organic shapes imitate natural surface textures such as barnacles and the way these natural forms envelop a surface.The embellishments are created using unconventional materials, creating metal sequins flecked with paint, hand dyed loops of tubing and origami like structures from melted plastic.Each piece in the collection is a saturated explosion of vivid colour and texture.
