Our fabulous bedding supplier SNURK, cherishes a love of handcraft themes in their much-loved photo prints. Crafting their styles by hand allows their designers to create unexpected textures, influence colour palettes and have the chance to play around with optical illusions – often with the help of freelance artists. It is a long creative process from idea to photo print, with many hours of handcraft in between.
Snurk’s designer Peggy finds her inspiration for new prints everywhere. Clay Traffic was inspired by a toy rug that she came across whilst shopping online on eBay.
The next step is a sketch of the print. Cars made from clay and also the road, or ‘snake sausages’, as Peggy like to call them.
The Clay Traffic print was a collaboration with artist Georgina Vieane. Georgina makes beautiful ceramics, plus she also does graphic and advertising work…and for SNURK, it was cars made of clay!
Snurk bought a lot of Play-Doh, in all colours of the rainbow …
The result was impressive! A selection of coloured cars, trees, traffic signs, traffic lights and roads
And here you have it, SNURK’s Clay Traffic Duvet Cover – for hours of playing and sleeping.
