Silk 'Passion' - art in your pocket
My aim is to create more art in our routine in unexpected forms. The moment of unexpectedness is what makes me curious. Blue is just like the first sprout, the beginning of my creation. Sometimes it disappears during the process, but I believe that the energy stays there. The many gentle touches of the artist’s hands make these objects distinctive and multi functional. 'Regards' belong to a home where personalities meet. Imagine a place where every little detail tells a story, where quality is a value of life, and the greatest luxury is being true to yourself. This is where 'Regards' meet You.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
'Passion' is one of 'Regards' objects. 'Regards' embody a gentle correlation between old crafts and modern design objects. Each design is unique piece of art and tells a different story. They change their look depending on your mood and pretend to be perfect through their natural imperfections. Each of them comes with a luxury package, a signed card and personal regards from the artist. Let the art meet You and grow old with you!
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Art in your pocket. Exclusive personal and corporate gifts. It is like a game - every object has more than one function. Fold silk and tie it up in many different ways to create different emotions, colors, and pictures. Looking for something more exquisite? Frame your scarf and make it last a lifetime. Once you fall in love with it, it stays with you and ads value through time.

The aim is to combine traditional art to innovative design, to extend life of artworks. I use traditional graphic art technique Drypoint in a mix with old photo art technique Cyanotype. It creates the feeling of freedom and easiness. Later I use the results together with contemporary design technologies. Finally I have a complete product for manufacturing.
The hardest part of this design activity is a very long creative and technical process. But finally I can proud of high value objects. It comes the real feeling that luxury can not be created in fast way.
