Patternlog 03: Standen House

My latest visual field trip was to National Trust property, Standen, in East Grinstead, West Sussex, UK. On the video below I take you round a place so full of pattern I don't know where to begin!

Standen is a perfect Arts & Crafts home with pattern in every room and a wonderful collection of art and objects on display. If you have been before, you'll know why I found this hard to edit down.

On the video below I take you on a tour round the house and then show you the sketches I created upon my return, and how these naturally turned into patterns when I carved them to lino.


My Work inspired by Standen

A rather naively printed meadow design that reminds me of endpapers.

A very simple folksy button flower.

A simple vine design with curly tendrills.

Dancing tulips.

Daffodils I printed on Mother's Day.

These patterns are yet to make it to product but watch this space in the future. If you would be interested in a collaboration or commission please do contact me to discuss.

The work I have produced and this video is made without any involvenment from Standen House or the National Trust. My descriptions will likely be historially inaccurate with many misspronounciations. Please take it as just one response of a visitor to the property rather, than a factual guide.
