Blog

Homefront Interiors blog page has been created as a way of highlighting the latest interior styles and those that the shop is influenced by in its look and feel. It is also an opportunity for us to sing the praises of all the artisan makers we feature in our independent store.  We are passionate about handmade art and crafts and in our meet the makers series we want to highlight the work of each and every one of them. 

 

Meet the Makers: Sally Dove

Vanessa Clark

 

Printmaker and lampshade designer, Sallydove hails from Bristol with her own shop and gallery (founded in 2012). We are delighted and privileged to not only have her work in store, but also to her have her expertise leading workshops in the art of lampshade making for Homefront.

Sally trained in Fashion Textiles at the University of Brighton before completing postgraduate study with an MA in Textiles in Birmingham.  Sally is a stickler for fair trade and ethical materials in her work and sources organic cotton some of which is manufactured on home looms in Kerala, India. The inks that she uses for her fabric printing for the lampshades and tea towels, are also environmentally friendly being water based.

Sally’s inspiration and designs usually begin their lives in her collection of sketchbooks and she then sets about the process of realising her designs. Sally uses a range of techniques to create her organically formed prints, including photographic exposures, hand drawn images and paper stencils combined with traditional silk screen printing. Inspired mostly by nature in her work with an emphasis on flora and forest, bold petals and patterns of leaves dominate, with intricate background detailing almost ceramic-like in imprint. This is all combined with a colour scheme that evokes a very pleasing retro Scandinavian feel. Sally produces a wide range of sizes of lampshades appropriate to their designs ranging between 15 and 45cm in diameter. They create unique statement pieces around the store and are much admired.
