My work at the final year project presentation

June 23, 2010

Yesterday, I presented my final year project. I can not show pictures at the moment since it is a project designed for the brand Hoss Intropia, we have to wait till the results are out.

On the other hand, we were told that we could include any of the work we have done during the year. I put some of my projects and I did a compilation of some of the patterns and binded them together with my tag. These are the pictures!

Products on the shelves!

I went this morning to take pictures of my items inside the shop of the Thyssen. I also took pictures of the street “Paseo del Prado” which is promoting the exhibition.  🙂 Check them out!

Thyssen exhibition: concept and sketches

June 23, 2010

I worked on the painting “M.Valerii Martialis Epigrammata” (1473-1474) below , and I redrew the animals that I found inside (a monkey, a rabbit, 2 flowers and 2 birds, the base which is an onion was inspired from the main painting of Giovanna). I did a vertical composition (each animal comes on top of the other) to remind of the vertical composition of the painting. All animals come in a profile position because the exhibition is mainly about profile depiction in the Renaissance.

Guess what? My designs were chosen. Lamps, vases, trays, booklets and pencils were produced and are currently on the shelves in the museum shop :). In addition to that, I am currently working on jewelry which will be done on the 30th, and sold there as well. Yey! So excited.

Below you can see the first sketches I did. And then are the final items I did. These pictures were taken yesterday at my final year project presentation. We were told that we could put on our table any of the designs we did all over the year.

“Ghirlandaio and Renaissance Florence” exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum

June 23, 2010

Today starts the exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza  Museum in Madrid. The exhibition is called: Ghirlandaio and Renaissance Florence (June 23 – October 10 2010). We were asked in school to get inspired by the paintings that are going to be part of this temporary exhibition, and propose items that could be sold at the shop. They have an amazing one with very cool items.
