Nature inspired creation - ecoprinting fabric 天然植物印染靈感


My recent works mostly are with some flower prints. Whenever I go hiking I would like to gather some fallen flowers for experiment. This knit silk jersey was made into a reversible Nuno felt dress after natural printing. Last hiking in Sai Kung was inspiring with the stunning views. Back home and I created a few pieces of prints.  Pictures below speak themselves.........
香港的郊野青綠處處,四季花卉燦爛,花開花落,洒在地上別有意境。近日我的創作嘗試了幾種在遠足時撿拾的落花,效果不錯且獨特,這針織𢇁料就是印了植物然後以羊毛混纎技巧製作的無縫裙子。

The day was brilliant to start our hiking from the water front......
那天清早到西貢遠足,晨光泛影......

 與隊友從白沙澳往深涌,半山眺望馬鞍山。
Creek with running water after heavy rains
雨後流水潺潺,隊友互相照應渡溪。
After up and down then the easy coastal walk with the mountain view - the "Saddle Hill"
跨過一山又一灣,沿著海岸線,馬鞍山與八仙嶺山海連天。
Tranquil bay with fishing boats 漁排小島、藍天白雲.........

Stop under the shade of papaya leaves to have a closer look of Saddle Hill.
馬鞍山就在這片青翠木瓜葉的視線前,沿著路上拾了些黃槿與野山茶落花,回家靈感泉湧,就做了一些實驗製作.......
 
The fallen camellia just good for my experiment. 野山茶花滿地, 正好的印染材料.

Below are the images of "Before & After"  植物鋪陳經個多小時加熱後的比較





I love the prints on silk jersey as it's so soft. This is the dress made with nuno felt skill I love most, soft color and airy feel.
以花卉做的印染我比較喜愛這款很柔和的效果,因此以羊毛混纖技巧做了這件雙面穿著的裙子, 很輕柔的質感.
